Eastbourne Art Trip
Y7 trip to Eastbourne College and the Towner Gallery… a piece of cake!
On Thursday 7th November 2013 Mrs Moore and Mr Izzard took Year 7 on a trip to Eastbourne College and the Towner Gallery.
At the Towner Gallery, we saw was the work of a Japanese performance and installation artist, Chiharu Shitoa, called 'The Other Side'. It was a room full of woven wool with 5 doors of people's houses leading into pathways on the other side. Before long we were out of 'The Other Side' and watched a video clip - a fast playing version of the 10 days it took to make.
We then went to see 'Wonderland' which was an exhibition of many different artists work; there were some sculptures, paintings, drawings and photos. This exhibition had a theme of illusions or images that made you speculate about their meaning. As well the traditional exhibitions there was one extraordinary one, it was a projected thin line. This was to make it look like a door on a wall when it was in fact just a plain wall.
We then walked back up to Eastbourne College and put on our creative hats. We separated into two rooms and put on aprons. We found out that we were going to make a container in the shape of a slice of cake. We had a talk and then began with cutting out the correct size of clay for each part of the slice. We had a quick demonstration about joining the parts of the clay together. We started to join the two main parts of the cake together using the method of score and split (like glue); we then put on more split to make the ‘Jam'. We then started to decorate the cake and lid using coloured split and clay cutters of many shapes and sizes.
We would all like to say a big thank you to Mrs Moore and Mr lzzard for taking us on a wonderful trip as well as a thank you to Eastbourne College and the Towner Gallery.

World Book Day

It’s been a busy week full of book related fun. To kick off Book Week The Library hosted a Book Hunt for the Prep School on Monday which saw the children hunting high and low for a selection of titles. On Tuesday it was Pre Prep’s turn as they took to the Astro to hunt for favourite book characters—I’m glad to say the glum weather did not dampen their high spirits! Prep School have been designing bookmarks during their library sessions with some fantastic designs created by our artistic pupils.
