Year 9 Art Immersion Day

All of year 9 were involved in our first Art Immersion Day on Wednesday 23rd September. The students were taken out of their normal timetable for the whole of the day to study the history and techniques of traditional Chinese Art, especially the art of the Tang and Song Dynasties. After a discussion about the history, composition and themes in these paintings the students started learning about the brushwork techniques. The students spent a large part of the day in the grounds, making ink paintings of the garden with a particular focus on showing the diversity of plants and trees, using different dilutions of ink to create foreground and background. Beautiful work year 9 and what a wonderful, mindful way to spend the day.
