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!
Over the summer term, our students who were moving on to A level Fine Art this September were asked to produce a series of work based on the theme of Still Life and objects founds around their home. Here is some of the fantastic artwork that they produced, using whatever materials they had to hand.
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!
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.
