  • GCSE Art Exam

    On Thursday and Friday last week, Year 11 Art students spent 10 hours in the Art Room engaged on making their main pieces in their Exam project. They had spent over 10 weeks preparing for this, making sketches, studies and plans on their chosen topic. Some were working on a theme called "Food" and others on one called "Fantastic and Strange." Although it is an exahusting process the students were well prepared and both days went went smoothly. Now they have the long wait until August to find out how well they did.

  • Back to school

    It has been a great start to the summer term in the Art Dept. After the success of the Abstraction project Year 7 began a looking at architecture as they prepared for making a small clay model in May. This week both classes drew from photographs of doorways. Year 8 are getting seriously into Typography, starting this week with lessons on how to space lettering in a balanced fashion. Several students really excelled at this.

    Most of the focus this week, though, has been on the GCSE Fine Art exam which began today. Having completed the first 5 hours today things look encouraging. Lets hope for similar success tomorrow!

  • At the Tate Gallery

    Challonerart was very impressed by the conduct and application of many of the students when we visited the Tate on Wednesday. Before entering the gallery we had a tour of the local area and spotted 5 sculptures dotted around the apartment blocks and shops that surround the Tate, including ones made of stone, one cast in bronze and one statue of a male figure that made several students feel uneasy because it moves. In the gallery we looked specifically at sculpture on the 4th floor. Particular favourites seemed to be two sculptures of trees, a bright blue crystalised engine and a large mirrored box.
