Wey Valley students are passionate about Art

A number of Wey Valley students are taking part in the Big Draw, the world’s biggest drawing festival, which takes place throughout October across schools, libraries, galleries and museums   This is the third year that school has taken part with two art projects based on sensory and 360 view. 

Alison Moore, Head of Art said: ‘ the sensory project has been a very creative project with students feeling items within a  plastic bag and then drawing what they have felt – there have been some outstanding Art produced by our students.’

The second project, the’ 360 view’ has enabled students to work together to draw their own perspective of a room and then to bring the art work together to form a 360 view of the room.

Links with Nepal and the Geography Department on landscape have been the focus for Year 8 students in Art with the school’s Nepal expedition due to take place this December.

Mrs Moore continued ‘students in Year 9, 10 and 11 are well underway with their GCSE Art, Graphic Design and Photography studies.  The standard of art work produced by our students continues to improve with some exceptional pieces produced already this term.  This follows the outstanding GCSE results this summer with our Photography and Graphic Design students achieving 100% A* to C and our Art students gaining 96% A* to C’.
