A Week of Creativity at RGS
Last week we had an exciting burst of creativity at RGS, with our Year Ten pupils participating in a Clay Workshop and Lower Sixth Art students working on their contributions for the ‘City Life’ Exhibition as part of their A Level Art Study Day. Sixty Year Five pupils from St Barnabas School took part in an Art Workshop and on Wednesday evening we also welcomed parents to RGS for a Print Making Workshop.
In the Year Ten Clay Workshop pupils designed and made tiles based on the work of William De Morgan and the Arts and Crafts Movement. The sessions were run by Fliss Osborne and Lara Mason, both talented artists and brilliant Art technicians!
Lower Sixth Art students immersed themselves in a day of creative exploration while crafting their contributions for the upcoming Exhibition. The Sixth Form artists have welcomed another invitation from the Dean and Chapter of Worcester Cathedral, allowing them to showcase their work in Chapter House over February Half-term. The students have meticulously crafted distinct artworks employing a diverse array of media, ranging from expressive drawings to mixed media and oil paintings. Each piece serves as a unique reflection, collectively portraying the rich tapestry of life throughout the City of Worcester.
On Wednesday we also held a Print Making Workshop where parents were invited to participate and rediscover their creative sides. We enjoyed welcoming parents into the Art Department in a new initiative and show them the creativity that goes on here!
As part of our creative week, we also created an installation in the Alice Ottley building made up of over 1000 origami butterflies flying from the balcony, made by pupils, Art staff and the Headmaster.
