Remote Learning: Spring/Summer 2020
Some of our KS3 pupils have entered the art competition. The theme was “what has been important to you during lockdown”. It was so hard to choose the winner, as each one is so unique. Well done to the amazing Teanna who has worked very hard with her family portrait painting. All pupils that entered will receive a certificate for there admirable work”
Teanna has also been engaging in a lot of the tasks and has brought her passion from art in school into her home, which is really nice to see.

Drawing With Anything
With our artists in residence in our AMSI Cubit studio, a group of year 7 students took part in a brilliant workshop. Hannah Bennett, our art technician and Jasmine Bhanji, our artist in residence, lead the “who’s afraid of drawing’’ workshop.
Well done to year 7s Hana, Cheyenne, Aliya and Emilia for joining in and producing some great work.
Art trip to the Jean-Michel Basquiat Exhibition
The Art department took a lucky group of year 8s and 9s to the sold out exhibition at the Barbican showing the work of the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
They discovered the explosive creativity of one of the 80s most famous, and ultimately tragic, art and graffiti pioneers who worked alongside other great artists such as Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. It was a great day and the students learned a lot from the exhibition and even managed to pop into the Museum of London before returning to school.
Year 10 Art Trip: Soul of a Nation
As part of Black History Month the Art Department took the Year 10 GCSE students on a trip to visit the Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power exhibition at the Tate Modern. The students spent the day exploring the gallery learning about Black History through Art. A very enjoyable and thought-provoking day was had by all.
During our day we took some time out to make some observational drawings of the work in the gallery. Below are some the students fantastic sketches.
Students having fun in the Tate’s Turbine Hall during our lunch break! The whole space had been transformed into a huge playground by a Danish design collective called SUPERFLEX.
Not only did the students experience art in the gallery, we also saw lots of street art during our journey and even bumped into Artist Ben Wilson who creates tiny paintings on old chewing gum stuck to the pavements!
