From the Art Department

We were privileged to attend the opening of the current Sidcot Art Centre exhibition last Saturday, which gave us a chance to chat to the artists Ingrid Hesling, Jenni Dutton and Ikuko Iwamoto. We are also very excited in that the latter two artists have agreed to come in and talk to our students in the coming weeks about the ideas and techniques behind their works.

If you have not yet visited this exhibition I highly recommend it, do visit!  I am hopeful that many of our students will take inspiration from this exhibition, perhaps adding information about the artists and their works to their examination or coursework sketchbooks.

On Friday the Art department hosted a CPD (continuing professional development) day for 20 trainee art teachers from the University of the West of England (two of whom are pictured here). Students spent the day working with iPads and smart phones, taking and editing images, creating animations, and learning about all the wonderful, creative and zany things that can be done with digital media in the Art Room.
