On the weekend of the 25th and 26th November, two Barry Comprehensive School GCSE Art students attended a workshop with the artist Heloise Godfrey-Talbot at Ffotogallery at the Turner House in Penarth.
Heloise led an art walk with a group of GCSE students from the locality. During this walk they collected materials to make their own sculptures, responding to the environmental themes of the current Mike Perry exhibition at Ffotogallery. Year 11 student Antony Hellinger decorated pebbles with mark making inspired drawings and Brandon Stevens, also Year 11, completed a natural form influenced sculpture.
We are extremely pleased that our students had this unique opportunity to be taught by an artist and develop their art skills, provided by Criw Celf. Criw Celf works with young people that show particular talent or interest in the visual arts, helping them to develop their potential. Criw Celf is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and is managed the Arts Active Trust. Well done to our GCSE Art students for their extracurricular effort.
