Some examples of current work…
Just one or two Y8 books from last year, showing some of the curriculum in action. Abstract painting with mark-making, Textures exam unit, they made some terracotta clay shells and Textiles quilting….
Francis is our amazing artist in residence from the RCA program Creative Mentors. She has been running textiles after school clubs for several years and another set of students have just finished their pieces and exhibited at the Tabernacle.
Year 7 classes have been looking at colour, collaging and animals this term, using the inspiration from Mark Herald… The detailed cutting and linear mark-making is fantastic.
There are two fantastic opportunities here for you to submit work you have already made, or make something specific to enter, The Westminster competition asks you to respond to one of a few themes/ issues, the RA competition is an open call. Details attached here, good luck and just follow the attached instructions, please do email your art teacher and let them know you have applied!
As some students were interacting from home and others were in the classroom, it was brilliant to see them share their creations live by the power of googlemeets!
