The talents of WIS artists were on display last week at the GCSE and A Level Art End of Year Exhibition. Work on display was in a variety of media including painting, chicken wire sculptures and conceptual installation. If you missed the exhibition, then you have an opportunity to see some of the fantastic art work at The Arts Festival to be held at WIS on Monday 15th July. This showcase will celebrate the Arts at WIS through Art, Music, Drama and Literature performances.

Landscape in a Box

Image
For the climax of their work on the Fantastic Places topic students in Year 7 and 8 researched their own choice of landscape. Over half term the students made models of their chosen landscapes in shoe boxes.
As part of their assessment for this topic the students each gave a talk about their landscape and answered questions from their peers. A selection of their finished models can be seen below.

Google Apps Student Survey

Google Apps accounts rolled out to students in the secondary school earlier this academic year. To help further develop the use of the Google Apps services I would appreciate some feedback from students on how they've used their WIS Google accounts so far.

Take the survey!
By completing the survey you will be automatically entered into a prize draw!

The Ballad of the Sad Café challenging impressions

Image
Year 13 A2 English Literature follows the theme Literature of Love.  Your starting point for the course is Carson McCullers` novella The Ballad of the Sad Café.  It will give you a dramatic and unusually challenging impression of love ...  it has been called a 'grotesque trinity of human relationships ...'
Look at the artistic representation of the three characters (right).  They are misaligned with attentional gazes not focused upon one another.   Marvin Macy (left); Miss Amelia (standing); Cousin Limon the hunchback (right).  Now look at the medieval depiction of The Holy Trinity, by icon painter Andrei Rublev.  How do you feel that his impression of God (the Father, centre; the Son, left; the Holy Spirit, right) compares with the impression of the Sad Café?
