Annabel Tilley Artist Workshop

Year 12 and 13 Art and Photography students were inspired this week by the artist Annabel Tilley who ran a sketchbook workshop with them on Thursday. Our students relished the opportunity to learn new drawing and mark making techniques which culminated in their own hand sewn sketchbook. Annabel Tilley has exhibited at the Tate Modern and spoke with the students about her book, ‘What they do not tell you in Art School’ giving valuable insight to any students who wish to go to Art School.

Year 8 Art students celebrating Black History Month

 

Our year 8 students investigated the work of contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley and individually created these brightly coloured patterned circles in response to his work. The work was then exhibited on stage during the Black History Month Celebration concert, where over 100 of them could be seen! A very impressive sight! Well done year 8!

‘Warhol Croydon’ Walking Tour

To celebrate 30 years of Andy Warhol, students from year 8 went on a walking tour with the Rise Gallery in Croydon to see contemporary art inspired by Warhol. At the end of the tour we went to the Rise Gallery and got to see an original ‘Campbell Soup Tin’ by Warhol himself!
