Congratulations from the Art Department!
Year 9 have produced some exciting and beautifully presented surrealist research homework. Over the next few weeks, they will be creating their own surreal designs linked to the theme of inside/outside. I cannot wait to see their final outcomes.
We were lucky enough to have five past pupils from the Creative Arts visit our Sixth form lessons at the end of December. They presented their current work and explained their successful journey into the field of Art, Sculpture and Photography. They answered questions from the pupils and gave careers advice. Thank you so much to Josie Bell, Imogen Patel, Beth Pearse, Courtney King and Ella West for their time and wonderful insights.

Year 13 Art Exam
Our Year 13 Art students completed their 15 hour Art Mock Examination today. They produced a variety of eye-catching compositions working in medias such as mono printing, embroidery, low relief 2D, acrylic, to name a few. Here is a sneak peak, but the whole selection of work will be exhibited at in the Summer Show in Presdales Art department in June.
Well done for all of your hard work girls!
Work by Anna Livingstone, Amy Lodge, Pippa Gillingham, Rachel Ward and Jessica Whitby.
Year 9 have been working on the theme of ‘outside’ this term. Their experimental work displays an array of skills from inks, pen to collage. After Christmas, we will be observing objects from inside, creating a still-life study. The final outcome, a surreal juxtaposition of both elements of inside and out.
