A creative group of 16 students from across Y7, 8 and 9 recently worked with Mrs Walton on an Art Enrichment activity which involved responding to artwork by students from another school whilst taking inspiration from a range of artists.
One of our Year 9 students said of the experience:
“We did an Art Enrichment activity and I learnt how to monoprint which has now expanded my artistic abilities. We were paired up with a student from Light Hall School in Solihull and they sent a postcard representing themselves. I looked at their work and did my own take on their style and made a postcard in response. Their work inspired me to create my piece of artwork using mixed media, mono printing, painting and collage. This experience has inspired me to learn more about how to control paints to create different effects to add texture and depth to my future art.”
The original postcards from both schools will be on display at Clyst Vale in September – so keep a look out!
