Year 12 …..making connections ?

Year 12 students started the year with the theme CONNECTIONS. They have explored physical connections…. in drawing… links to other artists .. and in these paintings are… making pieces that are DIS~CONNECTED… ! The still life  paintings created have been  developed from things that clearly have no real link to each other!

Students are beginning to find their own voice and are making strong, personal responses.

Y6 prospective students Opening Evening at The Mad Hatter’s Tea!

On Wednesday 20th September The Leigh hosted the Y6 Open evening for prospective Y7 students.


The art department had put on a Mad Hatter’s Tea still life set up for volunteering Leigh art students to draw from observation.

Whilst the other room showcased Y7 – 13 art works to showcase our Art course and what outcomes students had produced in the time at the school. This was a great opportunity for prospective students and their parents to see what Art offers here at The Leigh. It was an evening to engage with students art works and ask questions about the courses.

We had a number of our students volunteer on the evening to talk draw from the still life as well as engage with the Y6’s and their parents.


Thanks to all our students who helped out on this evening. The Y6’s and parents seemed to engage well with the artworks and hopefully they grasped an understanding of how art runs as a course from years 7-13.
