Work for Students

Creepy Creations see slide below created by Mr Fisher.

Design your own ‘Creepy Creation’ character, based on the art work style of Ken Reid. The stranger the better!  Why not also write a story/comic strip for the new creature?

Also don’t forget last week’s boredom busters and 30 drawing challenge – some fantastic work being sent in already, including those from Adam Duffield, Wojciech Przebinda and Mrs Mercer. Keep the brilliant art coming in!

  • Bonus task - 10 (imaginary) points for anyone who can pronounceLlanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch’ correctly! ??

There’s been a trend online this week for people recreating famous pieces of artwork (basically creative ways to be using up their time) – this can either be done through dressing up like people from artwork and taking photos or re-drawing the image with your own interesting twist, you could even recreate a piece of art using random objects found around the home.  As an extra boredom buster it would be great to see how inventive and creative you lot could be recreating your own favourite pieces of art.

Email in anything you do and we’ll get it shared on our social media ages.  There is a slide with some examples.

Welcome to the Art and Design Department at New College Leicester.

The Art and Design department offers students a wide variety of experiences within a purpose-built environment. The department, which is based in the heart of the college, includes three art teaching spaces, a ceramics and 3D classroom, textiles room, digital arts suite and a photographic darkroom/studio.

Students have easy access to computers which we increasingly use to aid Art and Design activities. We positively encourage the use of our facilities by enthusiastic students at lunchtime and after school where they can pursue their own interests or extend upon the work produced in normal lessons.

Every year students who perform well are justifiably proud of their achievements and we recognise this by displaying their work around the college which provides ongoing inspiration to others.
