Exciting news and a huge congratulations to Parnika, Parissa, Evie, Sophia and Yvonne for winning the competition. They could not decide on one winner so awarded all of them with prizes and their work will feature across both the children’s and adolescent menus. They also have the other hospitals within the Spire group interested in using their designs too so a huge well done to these students.
On Monday we visited the hospital and took part in taste testing the current menu and offering feedback and critique about what could possibly be developed or changed in any way.
They were also given their prizes and the school were given £100 worth of book vouchers. We cant wait to see the actual menus once they have been developed for printing by the designers. Watch this space for those…
Again, well done to all our well deserved winners who were brilliant on Monday, making the school and the Art department very proud.
Here are the winning entries and a few photos from the day….
Some of my year 7 and 8 students have entered an exciting competition being run by the Spire Hospital in Manchester. They wanted a new front cover design for their children’s food menu. Fingers crossed one of our students wins it…..well done for all of your efforts, they were looking really good…these are just a few….
The annual Art A level exhibition opened on Tuesday 19th June and this year included some excellent examples of work from the new GCSE course. It was a beautiful summers evening, very well attended with many proud parents and friends of the Year 13 students. Again there was a variety of themes and styles on show ranging from portraiture, to chickens to cars and the students skills clearly shone through.
Collage can mean lots of different paper techniques and can be done in so many creative, unusual and personal ways. My year 9 class have produced some lovely, sleek, crisp pattern designs which would look great put into repeat and used for homewares….
