Beautiful Natural Forms prints from our Print Making workshop this week. To create these positive and negative pieces students learned a variety of mono printing techniques such as burnishing and collage; with the use of wallpaper to help create textured backgrounds. To generate such refined pieces of work students used the printing press, this has allowed elements such as leaf veins to appear in more detail! I think you will agree that for first timers students have succeeded to created beautiful outcomes!

As well as Ms U’ren’s Print Making Workshop tomorrow we also have a Photoshop workshop lead by Mr Smith this Thursday 22nd June. Please sign up at the Art Office if this is something that interests you!

Students took part in the first Summer Sessions masterclass on Street Art Stencilling this week. Joined by staff as well, they learnt how to make multiple stencils to build up layers and colour in their artwork. They all worked together to create one board full of stencils which will be displayed in the Art Department. All students really challenged themselves and the outcomes look great!

The Design Department ‘Bird House Competition’ was very well received, the range of ideas and techniques were wonderful! We had ones that had feeders attached, a twig house construction, a blue African weaved fabric house and a bold rainbow coloured lolly stick house. A tough job to judge! However, we came to a decision and here are the results…

1st- Decorated with a cat which hopefully wont scare the birds away by Gregor MacLeod.

2nd –An exquisitely detailed Alice in Wonderland book design by Tamara Euillet

3rd– A beautifully weaved African bird house by Miss Kohlman.

Congratulations everyone and thank you for entering. Look out for the next competition coming soon!
