Habs Boys gets creative with The Big Draw event
Between November 14 and 16, the Art Department held a very exciting event for the entire school community.
Titled ‘The Big Draw’, the three-day event saw all students and staff invited to a one-hour workshop in Aske Hall. There, they each budding artist created a small tile of a much larger ceramic installation, now seen hanging in the Taylor Building.
Arriving in the hall, students and staff were briefed on the task of creating an abstract tile, featuring whatever imagery came to mind. Creative tools ranged from a rolling pin, plastic knives and a square template, to a pine strip of wood, block of clay, paint brush and slip. With everything laid out ready, the rest was left up to the imagination.
Frankie (7J) loved the experience. “I got stuck in and went with it, creating a tile with my own ideas which resulted in something that I was unexpectedly quite proud of. I thoroughly enjoyed the session as I am sure everyone else did. It made me feel happy and the spontaneous creativity was great fun.”
Frankie was one of many students hoping there are more workshops to come, with many benefitting hugely from the opportunity. A big thank you to our Art Department for organising such a community-driven event.
