I’ve been typing too much lately, so here’s some more great images from our Fanelli inspired project.
Sarah D (S1/OLSP) has been working on the amazing piece above. She was creating it for a challenge focusing on mental health and art therapy. Inspired by Sara Fanelli, she was able to finish the work in under two hours. It has been created using old papers, charcoal pencil, pens, paper off cuts and small photos of holocaust victims. It can be taken at face value for being the very sweet image that it is, or if the viewer thinks about the work, it can leave a very poignant impression fairly wedged in your mind. I actually think it’s better than Sara Fanelli…
The Art Clast team have been working very hard in completing a report for the BBC News School Report. They focused on games this year, highlighting addiction, underage gaming and the effects of violence and sexual imagery on players. It was quite a dark subject, so they tried to do it as a more light-hearted feature piece. You can watch the ‘rushed for air’ version here. There will be a longer, tighter edit posted up on YouTube soon.
The five Art Clast podcast girls attended the Blue Peter Olympic Tour this morning. They met Barney and Helen, hung about back stage, stood up front in the crowd for the show and ended up being on TV quite a lot. You can watch the report on the BBC website with the link below:
Just finished putting up the title header for my friend and colleague’s blog. Ms Clarkin has just set up a book club blog for her S2 pupils. There are only a few posts on it so far, though it’s worth checking out for the future, it’s going to be an interesting site. The link is below, I’ve also added it to the blog roll.
This is my 400th post!!
Doesn’t seem a lot when you think I’ve been doing this for nearly two years.
I’ve been spending a good few of my summer days sorting this out. It looks good though. More stuff to come soon when I can catch my breath.
