Year 12 Photography students went on their first field trip of the year to the Cole Museum of Zoology, located within Reading University.

Students had to think carefully about the technical aspects of photographing preserved specimens and taxidermy through glass, but all approached the task with creative endeavour!  Students will use these photographs to respond to their brief studying Surrealism. We look forward to seeing their ‘dream like’ responses!

Waingels College Art and Design Year 13 students celebrated another successful Private View: ‘Solace’ on Wednesday 12th July. Every year we welcome the student’s friends & families, staff, members of the community and past Waingels students along to our end of year Art show. This is always a very social event that allows us as a school to keep in touch with our Alumni.

This year, the work encompassed came from Textiles, Photography and Graphic Design students displaying a range of outcomes from large scale installations, to photobooks, and fabric paintings. Students worked extremely hard to organise the exhibition themselves by hanging and curating, designing a promotional poster, organising refreshments and on the evening meeting and greeting visitors that walked through our doors.

SOLACE FINAL POSTER

We hope to see as many of you as possible at our Year 13 Private View tonight!

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!
