The art department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the senior school through the award of the title, ‘Artist of the Moment’. Entries cover a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and mixed media.
Our theme for Lower Fifth this term is ‘Forgotten Places’. Johnny in Lower Fifth generated this mixed media drawing from a photograph he took of a stone outbuilding. He has been influenced by the mixed media artist Ian Murphy and has used built up layers of tissue paper, paint, and black finer liner to describe the craggy surface of the stones within this structure. Well done, Johnny.
