One big picture
Secondary students have been busy this term creating some wonderful art work.
In previous years students across the secondary centres have come together to create 'One Big Picture' as part of our annual art show. This has not been possible for the last two academic years due to COVID restrictions. This term the department launched 'One Big Picture: Apart Together' as a way to still provide opportunities for collaboration but keeping within centre bubbles. This term we looked at Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and students created lino and polyblock printing tiles depicting a 'dotty pumpkin' image based on her work. They also created A4 backgrounds which centred around a dot motif. All of these pieces were then complied to create the one big picture on display at our central office in Sundorne.
This November students created WW1 remembrance soldiers out of poppies, which included lines from the poem 'In Flander's Fields'. A mix of KS3 and KS4 students from Sundorne and Oswestry worked together to paint, write on, cut out and stick on the poppies and learnt about the origins and meaning of the poem. They created beautiful displays for their centres and earnt their AQA Unit Award Scheme: Poppies entry level.
