Year 12 Fine Art sketchbooks & final outcomes

In preparation for their Personal Investigation project next year, Year 12 Fine Art students have completed a project based on an area of interest from a selection of past exam paper questions.

They have really enjoyed developing their independent thinking and research skills and exploring in more depth the materials and techniques that were of most interest to them. The final outcomes involved a range of techniques such as oil and acrylic paints, cyanotypes, casting methods, collage and stitch and assemblage. We can’t wait to see what they go on to produce during their Y13 project!

Summer Show

Due to Covid-19. our GCSE and A Level Art, Graphics and Photography students have not had the chance to exhibit their work at school in our annual Summer Show. We invited these students to submit their work via email so we could celebrate it on our blog. Here are the submissions below; well done to all that sent work in!

 

 

 

Year 12 Art: Glass making workshop

Last term, Year 12 art students went to Court Street Gallery in Trowbridge to attend a workshop led by Alex Compton, a local ‘Glass Artist’.
 
The students brought their sketchbooks along as a source of inspiration as they had previously been set a personal theme for their coursework which could influence their outcomes in the workshop. They used some of the studies in their books as a form of inspiration and were then shown different ways they could work with and manipulate glass in order to create two free standing pieces of glass art.
 
Everyone enjoyed the workshop and learnt some new, exciting and rewarding techniques.
 

Take a look at their outcomes below…
