25th Oct 2019 – As the first half term of the year comes to a close, we’d like to celebrate some of the work produced by our Art & Technology students.
‘In Year 10 Fine Art, we have been looking at the theme of ‘Wild and Tame’ and have been producing drawings of taxidermy from Tring Natural History Museum, and from photographic imagery. We have learnt a variety of techniques, such as stippling and graffito painting techniques. I have enjoyed working with acrylic paints, ink and sticks and variety of wet and dry mediums.’ Rebecca, Y10.
‘In Year 9 this term, the students have been working on some exciting new Technology projects, including a ‘Street Food’ themed project in Food, where students have been learning to make a variety of different types of bread and pastry to form an edible casing for their products.
Today, Year 9 did a fantastic job on making their own puff pastry for their mini pizza tartlets, with the examples here demonstrating Bake-Off worthy lamination!
Year 9 Textiles students are well underway with a project to design a ‘Makeup Bag with a Message’, producing a photomontage on the theme of ‘Body Image’ which they have now started translating into a lino print onto fabric. Everyone in the department has been really impressed and excited by the work produced- well done girls!’ Miss Cooke
