On Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 December, the Art Department held an exhibition in the Library. Art Award holders explored the theme A Christmas Carol and Lower and Upper Sixth Artists presented work developed from their study trip to Cornwall.
A wide variety of work was on display with diverse ideas evident in students responses from their trip to Cornwall, it was lovely to see their ideas develop in their sketchbooks from the photography, drawing and contextual research from their trip. Art Award Holder’s responded to the theme of Dicken’s A Christmas Carol from lots of different angles, including sculpture, drawing, painting and mixed media to excellent effect.
Parents were pleased to see the work produced by their own young artists and the work of the older students. It is particularly inspiring for the younger artists to see the high standard to which they aspire.
Personally I would like to thank our pupils for their hard work and creativity, they have put on an impressive show demonstrating a high level of skill and enthusiasm. I am already considering the theme to challenge them with for the summer exhibition!
