Insects, Marine Life and Art Nouveau

These recently completed pieces of work are by Year 11 GCSE Art and Design students.The project entitled Insects, marine and Art Nouveau, saw students go on a visit to London to get inspiration for the project. Students made studies of Art Nouveau jewellery in The Victoria and Albert Museum and then went on to see bugs, butterflies and marine life in The Natural History Museum. The following mixed media 2D relief pieces are some of the students' responses to the theme.
 
Sean Crompton - Snorkelling
Rachel Thorpe - Butterfly face

George Burgess - Clockwork bug

Jan Wright - Deep sea diving
