The Art department of Ysgol Harri Tudur set up an exhibition of work to celebrate the effort their students have shown over the past two years of the course.
Retiring head of Art, Kate Jones, said: "I continue to be amazed by the talent of pupils in all the different Art mediums. I am proud of the effort students past and present have made, many of whom have gone on to have successful careers in Art and Design."
The Art award at this year's ROA was won by Izzy Day who created some striking art work on the themes movement and time.
GCSE Art student Declan Connellan chose documentary photography as his medium for his portraits and posters on the theme Refuge.
Illustrator Rhys Edwards was inspired by graffiti artist Keith Haring to design the graphics for this skateboard.
Lowri Hart was inspired by Manga and fantasy art to create a series of characters based on her and her friends.
Year 9 Geography pupils were asked to produce a fact-sheet on the rainforest biome as part of an end of unit assignment. The assignment needed to show how processes operate in the ecosystem, why the ecosystem is under threat and how it can be managed sustainably. This excellent work by Fern Cumine in Year 9 effectively addresses these criteria in an informative and creatively presented response. Well done, Fern.
As part of the Geography Department's 'learning log' assignments, some pupils have chosen to focus on the European Union. The subject is currently a hot topic in the media and this gave pupils a chance to independently research and make up their own minds about the role of the European Union. As you can see, pupils were asked to present both sides of the argument in an imaginative way. This excellent work by Millie Harris in Year 9 exemplifies how our geographers in Ysgol Harri Tudur/Henry Tudor School really enjoy getting involved in current affairs and 'geography in the news'.
In Art, Year 8 have been studying Hundertwasser and experimenting with different, creative painting techniques. They have used influences from their own environment in response to Hundertwasser's belief in the '5 skins'. That we are all deserving of respect, and we should respect everyone and everything we see. As you can see, pupils have display excellent mastery over their painting. Well done pupils, and we look forward to seeing more from our talented artists here at Ysgol Harri Tudur/ Henry Tudor School.
