GCSE Art And Textiles Exhibition
Parents, staff and pupils all marvelled at the art and textiles pieces Year 11 girls produced for their GCSE, at a recent private exhibition.
In their first year of GCSE Textiles, the girls explored the 'Natural World' as a project. The group visited the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum for ideas. In contrast, the first year of the Art GCSE explored the topic ‘My World’ where students start to look at their own lives as well as a visit to the Tate Britain for inspiration.
In Year 11, in both the Textiles and Art syllabuses, the girls explored 'Beginning and End' as a theme to which the girls had the opportunity to develop their own research further. For the examination unit the theme was 'Fragments' to which the girls visited Tate Modern in London for more inspiration.
Sophie Langton, Textiles teacher, said:
“This group have been really inspirational to teach, and they are all so incredibly talented. My main goal for this GCSE group was to introduce them to Surface Textiles and Embellishment and they have all implemented this into their work. It has been a fantastic two years with the girls”.
Joel Wareing, Head of Art at Senior Girls, added:
“This year group has seen some great talent and students have produced some skillful and attractive final pieces. Many of them have used photography, textiles and digital software to enhance their projects and some have produced mixed-media final pieces showing a mixture of these skills.”
