All About Art

Visual Arts in the Middle School has had a very positive start to 2018, with consolidation and slight adjustments to existing programmes seeing very pleasing standards in the boys' work across the three year groups. Energy levels are good and enthusiasm is high!

We have approached FORM to initiate some workshops within the framework of the agreement between Scotch and FORM, and should see that materialise into opportunities for several groups to visit the Goods Shed and undertake enrichment activities designed to develop transferrable skills early next term.

The Art extension group continues to build on their skill base, which they have been developing over the course of the last 12 months, and some of their work is featured alongside this article. As you can see, there is some quite refined and sophisticated work being produced by boys who are not so far into Year 8. Art extension remains open to boys who have an interest in Art, and would like to spend a couple of hours developing their skills on a Thursday afternoon after school. If your son would like to participate, please have him contact me.
