This week we celebrate our first Ruyton Art Week (RAW), with an array of activities and events. During last Friday’s Assembly I spoke to the girls about following their passions and hope they will find inspiration in some of the workshops and demonstrations on offer.
Throughout the week girls in Junior School and Senior Schools will have opportunities to explore Art in a number of forms: watercolour and copic marker illustration, wheel throwing and special effects make-up, to name but a few.
Mrs Davies is organising a range of special activities for her classes, with lots of surprises during the week. We had an enthusiastic start, with a group of girls participating in Ms Dawn Tan’s Watercolour Illustration Workshop on Monday at lunchtime, where the girls were able to produce some stunning images in a very short space of time, with some simple tips and techniques from Dawn.
The images from our What Sparks Your Creativity out of School competition, displayed in the Year 9/10 Open Learning Area, are testament to the many talents our girls possess. I look forward to seeing who the prize winners will be and who our People’s Choice Award will go to. Thank you to all the girls for submitting their work and putting their passions on display for the rest of us to admire.
