‘Art makes us think more deeply, it allows us to take risks, explore and be creative’
Check out this gallery of GCSE artwork from students in London. The current Year 10 and 11 students at St Marys Catholic High School in Croydon have built up creative confidence through exploring a wide range of materials, techniques and processes from drawing and painting to printmaking.
They have been allowed to develop their ideas and skills through projects about identity ‘Me, Myself & I’ and still life ‘The Cup & Saucer Project’.
“Students have worked from observation and their imagination,” says Kelly Goodwin, Head of Art. “They looked at a range of artists, both historical and contemporary enabling them to create imaginative and detailed pieces of work. Each response produced has allowed the students to grow as artists.”
