Throughout Term 2, the Art department has initiated our first student leadership groups. In Primary School, Ms. Seo and the “Little Picassos” have been busily designing and crafting for personal and whole school projects, including artist fact-files, logos and assembly displays. Meanwhile, in Senior School the new design company “Art Murmurs” have been honing their digital design skills, creating their brand and working to live briefs such as a sketchbook cover illustration for the Olympiad Art students and a t-shirt design for the Self- Defence ECA. After a very successful term, we’re very much looking forward to the students being able to make more decisions and steer the groups for themselves. Therefore, it gives me great pleasure in announcing that Ga-Eun Kim (Year 10) will be the manager of “Art Murmurs” next term. She will work with her team of designers to improve skills, work towards live briefs and set group constraints. As these groups become more established we look forward to even more collaboration across the schools and more leadership opportunities becoming available. Have a look at the new ‘Art Leadership Noticeboard’ outside the Art rooms for updates, examples of student work and announcements.
Congratulations to all of our “Little Picassos” and “Art Murmurs” on a hugely successful and rewarding term!
