Year 11 Art 

Year 11 spent their final lesson working in clay,  the brief was: ‘Make your teacher out of clay’.

The art department along with other teachers were very impressed with their
interpretations. We especially liked the ones based on members of the Humanities department who are keen to get their hands on them!

Well done to our Year 11 artists, we can’t wait to see what you do next!

'I have two snakes. One is a royal python which is 3 years old and called Shiro.  She originates from Africa and likes humidity.

The other one is Akira, he is a corn snake, often found in America, he can get up to 6 ft long. Both of my snakes are very active and eat mice. Eventually they will eat bigger mammals!' 

Year 9 Aids Memorial Quilt 

Year 9 students were asked to design a quilt inspired by the Aids Memorial Quilt, which was an enormous memorial to commemorate the lives of people who have died of aids related causes.

Year 7 Soap Sculptures 

Students in 7W made some amazing soap sculptures in our remote art lesson this week, inspired by Barbara Hepworth. Well done 7W!

Black Lives Matter Artwork 

My intention, when I produced this painting of a Black woman, was to represent the BLM movement through the image and what is implied by it.

Her hair deliberately stands out a lot, which for me is a big part of black culture, cultural appropriation, and cultural appreciation. The crown, comfortably sitting at the top of her head, replaces the fact that she does not have any facial features (e.g. eyes, nose, lips etc.).  I chose to represent her in this way because, in my opinion, a lot of Black people must “put a face on” for the rest of the world because of the stereotypical opinions, perceptions and views that the world has of Black men, women and children. It also shows the strength used to do this.

Salt Dough Sculptures

Just before the half-term break, students in 7W had a remote lesson where they used salt dough to make sculptures!

These guinea pigs are by Rosanna 7W.




Rosanna fired them in the oven and then painted them.

Zahra 7W made a salt dough rainbow.



Both students made some wonderful sculptural creations!

Well done to 7W for your creative work.

Year 8 Art

Students from 8F have been creating sculptures at home inspired by the artist Mona Hatoum. They have used utensils, household objects lights and cameras to create the illusion of artworks being larger than they seem. Well done on innovative use of household materials.

Art & Computer Science working together 

Gina in 7G produced this beautiful pattern in Art based on a algorithm that she wrote the rules for.

Gina spent a long time doing it and it looks like she really enjoyed completing this task.

Well done Gina—a fantastic piece of work that celebrates Computer Science and Art!

Year 10 Art News

The current topic for art students in Year 10 is "collections". Each student chose a single object to paint onto a tile, in a limited palette of neutral acrylic paint colours.

The objects they painted ranged from stones and shells, to miniature plastic farm animals.

The students did a great job as you will see below - well done!

Year 7 Creative Shoes

Here are some more fantastic homework pieces by students Eva and Noa 7F. Students were asked to create a piece of work inspired by shoes, using the formal elements of art- tone, colour, texture and patterns. I have been really impressed with the responses from students!
