My art room has been very quiet these last few days – the Grade 12 students have been frantically working to finish their exam pieces. My lessons are generally quite loud – I often tell the kids that I feel like I am running a pub – music playing & a convivial atmosphere – I just don’t serve snacks & drinks! I will post more images of girls' work once everything is up on the walls. I thought I would take some before and after pics – so that you can see how the studios transform.

Santhuri has attempted quite an interesting technique – she is making drawings by piercing holes with different size needles to create shading in the drawing. A section and close up of her work is below:
Our exhibition is on the 11th of October & the studios will be open to the public from the 12th to Friday the 28th of October. The studios will close briefly (from about 9am – 11am) on Tuesday 12th October for moderation and will close again on the 17th of October when the examiner arrives to mark the exam pieces.
Please feel free to visit anytime during the school day - the studios will be open until 3.45pm.
