Year 8 Art and Technology Day

Yesterday our Year 8s’ spent the day doing Art and Technology. In the Technology rooms they used found materials to create a chair for Mr Phillips to sit on. The only thing was they were not allowed to use any screws or nails. Results were variable! Up in the Art Room we had a special visitor, local artist Phil Madley who is an encaustic wax artist. philmadley.com  Phil taught the boys how to melt wax using irons to create some stunning images. Very many thanks to Phil for his expertise and to Mrs Hill and Mr Phillips for organising the day.
