BBC The Big Painting Challenge is required watching in the Art and Design Department so we are excited to announce that the 2017 Winner Suman Kaur, is this year’s guest prizegiver. Everybody is welcome to attend this event to hear Suman and to see the newly displayed artwork around school and talk to the artists. Year 11s and 13s are especially invited to bring their friends and family.
Visiting artist www.bonnybrey.com inspired GCSE and A level Photography students to work with light to create interesting shadows and create these dramatic images.
Many galleries and colleges have workshops and clubs aimed at 11-18 year olds. They are often free and a lot of fun. Here are some opportunities that have come to our attention for the summer term: Bradford College https://www.bradfordcollege.ac.uk/events/saturday-clubs Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield. Work with animator Sheryl Jenkins to create a short animated film that you can take home at the end of the day. http://www.hepworthwakefield.org/whatson/young-peoples-animation-workshop/ Showreel selection from Sheryl Jenkins on Vimeo. If you want information about any of the workshops, please see your Art Teacher.
Thanks to the year 12 Photography students for their images capturing the fun at the sixth-form Open Evening. Can you spot which famous artists have inspired the props?
