If you go down to the woods today…

This term saw our new GCSE cohort of artists embrace the natural environment and in line with the national Big Draw event explore a range of approaches to drawing inspired by the work of contemporary landscape artists.

Accompanied by Ms Pattullo, Mr Bowland and Ms Lee pupils spent the day at Delamere forest responding to both the rolling hills, dappled sunlit trees and delicate crisp autumn leaves.

Mr Bowland said of the experience, ‘What better way to start our pupils’ new artistic journey than to immerse them in our beautiful local environment. Pupils conducted themselves with incredible maturity and produced some truly wonderful work.’

Pupils will use their initial studies to inspire a range of creative outcomes back in the art studios.

Ships ahoy…

On a bright sunny October Year 9 pupils, in line with the national Big Draw event were set the challenge of drawing the plethora of boats moored at the Albert Docks, Liverpool. Having looked at the work of a range of artists who use a variety of approaches to drawing boats and harbours, pupils set about producing a series of line drawings.

Pupils will be developing their work back at school transforming their stunning line drawings into three dimensional wire boat sculptures.

‘The Art department could not be prouder of our Year 9 pupils, the work they produced is a testament to hard work, maturity and an ability to reflect on their work. The work Year 9 have produced would stand up very well at GCSE level, so we are incredibly excited to see what they produce this academic year!’
