The Art department in Barcelona

The work from the Serpentine and St Marylebone Edgware Road Project – Re-Assembly is currently on exhibition at Fabra i Coats Gallery in Barcelona. It is part of a large exhibition themed on art as social practice. We went to see the exhibition this weekend. Here are a few photos of the show and a few Gaudi visits whilst we were there!

 

Year 8 Independent Project

This year, our Year 8 students took part in an independent project, the theme was Marks and Textures. The students had to research their idea, find artists, develop some new work, create thumbnail plans and make an outcome. All these tasks were completed in class and at home, with class time handed over to the students to manage themselves. They could choose what tasks they completed at home, and what they would do in lessons.

They we learning about self management and organisation as well as the process in making art work. We are very proud of their outcomes… This was one I especially was impressed by…

At the Serpentine this weekend…

Was the launch of the ‘School and the Neighbourhood’ publication, that came out of the work from the Edgware Road Project residency between 2009-2014.

The launch with an intimate discussion and some hard copies of the booklet, now means that the document is available for download at the Serpentine Gallery Website.
