Y7 Art trip to Tonbridge School

On Thursday 5th May, the Art Extension groups went to Tonbridge School for a ceramics trip with Mrs Moore and the ceramicist-in-residence Lydia Hardwick.
After arriving, we went to the Art department where we met Lydia, the artist running the course. Our aim for the day was to make an abstract clay sculpture using different shapes and colours. First we were split into two groups of four and were set three tasks, using a big ball of clay, to get us going. These tasks were to try and create the tallest freestanding tower, the longest line, then the highest number of spheres. The team I was in won two out of the three tasks, meaning we won overall. We then looked at a slide show on two artists who created abstract clay sculptures to give us an idea of what to do.
We mainly used slabs of clay slabs to create our sculptures, adding them onto a base piece. Antoine was creating a 3D face and so cut out a piece of clay and laid it around a ball of tightly packed newspaper. We used various tools such as: a potter's knife, kidney and rolling pin. To make patterns we used tools with ragged edges or a syringe that was able to squeeze out clay in a certain shape.
To finish off our sculptures we added green, blue, red, or yellow slips, to add effect and brighten up them up.
I really enjoyed this brilliant trip; it was an interesting, fun experience. Thank you to Mrs Moore for taking us.
