Year 12 students created two hanging installations, as a sculptural starting point for their Metamorphosis project. They wanted to explore the transformation of organic matter through seasonal decay and used a selection of plants including ivy, thistles, buddleia and fig leaves. Sheep skulls and a few feathers were also woven into the delicate structures.
We were delighted to welcome young people from across London (and beyond) to our Sixth Form taster day. In Art, students used their 35-minute sessions to create ink and bleach paintings of a skeletal installation and in Textiles, hand painted screen-printed designs were applied directly to fresh cotton.
Last night was the private view of THE SCIENTIST AND THE FIREBRAND – an exhibition of etchings by students of St Marylebone School and the Heatherley School of Fine Art at the Brompton Cemetery Chapel, (5-22 July 2018). This show is inspired by the lives of two eminent women who are buried in Brompton Cemetery; the behavioural scientist, Jane Wardle and the political firebrand, Emmeline Pankhurst. One of our students gave a live performance of a song she had composed, which included lyrics from suffragette speeches. Well done to all the Year 9 Students who exhibited their works!
For a concert in November, students in one Year 7 classes have been making small colourful birds to be used on a projection.
