Junior Boys First Art Exhibition
Junior Boys held their first Art Exhibition to parents to show the fantastic work they have been producing as part of a competition. All pupils in Years 3 to 6 at Claires Court Junior Boys had the opportunity to produce an observational drawing to take part in the CCJB Drawing Competition 2017.
They were challenged to draw the stuffed animals loaned from Reading Museum, in 50 minutes. The boys were allowed to use pencils, fine liner pens, charcoal, polychrome pencils and colouring pencils.
The competition was judged by Joel Wareing, Head of Art at Claires Court Senior Girls, and Frances Ackland-Snow, Artist in Residence at Senior Boys. The winners were:
1st Samuel Jackson
2nd Alex Pearce
3rd Lewis Moorby
1st Danyal Baber

Mr Justin Spanswick, Head of Junior Boys commented;
“I am very proud of our outstanding provision of Art and Design Technology within the school, and we put a great deal of emphasis on the pupils feeling free to expressing themselves. Mr Goddard, our Director of Art, works hard with our pupils, inspiring them to think with creativity and without inhibition.
Our boys have such a wide range of Art to choose from, whether they take the more traditional routes, or possibly experiment with photography, computer animation and sculpture. It is a privilege to watch the boys in action, and this 'Still Life' challenge has been no exception.”
