We have been fortunate yet again to be able take part in the Community ‘MOSAIC’ project in collaboration with BGHS.
A group of our Year 7s worked with an Artist named ‘Fabric Lenny’ on the theme of ‘LIGHT’
The project this year was based on Science and how we could interpret this through Art. The Artist is freelance and works from Holmfirth. He was a great inspiration to the students and they responded by creating a fantastic array of art work in his style.
Several schools from around the community worked in partnership and the end result will be showcased in a full exhibition of all the schools work at Batley Art Gallery in the next few weeks.
Mrs Townend Creative Arts teacher said “We visited the Museum of Science in Manchester as part of the workshops and our students excelled themselves in terms of behaviour and set a fine example of ‘Tomorrows successful men’. There were 3 workshops with the Artist and we shared good practice with BGHS. The students corresponded with the girls through feedback and evaluation.”
The students will be visiting the Gallery to see their work in the exhibition in the coming weeks.
