Update from the Art Department

Added 3 years ago

KS3 Art Club

KS3 Art Club have been busy helping make props for the school production of Annie this half term . They even recreated the Mona Lisa ready for its stage debut. Eat your heart out Leonardo Da Vinci ! 

Art Club is open to years 7, 8 and 9 on Wednesday lunchtimes


The school production of Annie this year allowed the art department to get really creative with the set . Our challenge was to design a versatile set that could change from the grimy orphanage to the opulent surroundings of the Warbucks mansion. Having made a small model to work from we then set about creating the New York skyline and painting the flats for the interchangeable scenes . Lots of help and team work brought together a really fantastic set which really came to life on the evenings of the performances .

Special thanks to Hazel McGregor and Lori-Anne Krausewitz our fantastically skilled technicians. Also big thanks to  Willow Burrows in Year 10 who has aspirations of becoming a set designer and really helped with painting the set.
