Pupil Summer Exhibition 2017

    28 June 2017

The academic year 2016-2017 has seen a lot of changes in the Art Department at Sherfield School. In September we welcomed Louise Hight, professional artist, as our new prep school Art Teacher. She has been working on a number of exciting projects this year within the prep school and also given the pupils wonderful opportunities to work on some large scale projects in their lunchtimes and after school. In the summer term she organised and took a number of trips to Roche Court, Southampton City Art gallery and the Stanley Spencer museum.

In the senior school pupils have worked with Lewis Mason (maternity cover Art Teacher) and Lee-Anne Hampson, (Artist in Residence and acting Head of Department.) At Easter we saw Lewis Mason complete his maternity cover and Sarah Harris re-join us as Head of Art.

In the 2017 Summer Showcase you can see the work of our current GCSE and A level students and get a glimpse of just some of the work they have produced over their two years of study. The course content has been diverse and allowed pupils to explore art in the broadest sense of the word; from traditional painting and drawing skills, to much more unusual resin casting and working with latex.

Throughout the senior school our other pupils have embarked on ambitious projects that have been inspired by art from across the ages. Some of the more delicate or ambitious projects can be seen on the video that accompanies this exhibition.

When I curated this exhibition, one thing is certain, we have a huge wealth of talent at Sherfield and the independent nature and mature approach our pupils take to this highly skilful and difficult subject continues to grow year after year.
