Inspiring St Ives!Posted on: 10/06/2022
This week, our Y10 GCSE art students visited Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Gardens as part of their forthcoming Y11 coursework unit based on ‘Concealment’. Fine weather helped students capture the larger-than-life bronze sculptures situated in her tranquil garden. Students used mixed media and challenging drawing techniques as part of their first hand observations. They were also intrigued by the current exhibition by Ad Minolita which fused colour and pattern to create an installation of Furries (large toy like models) and fashion. Also, Y10 Photography students visited Tremenheere Sculpture Garden near Penzance as part of their coursework project based on 'Light & Dark'. Students were tasked with taking photos of textures, shadows, landscapes, close-ups, sculptures, and plants whilst capturing unusual angles and compositions.
