Year 11 GCSE Art Workshop
with Jake Attree

On Monday our Year 11 Art students enjoyed a full day workshop with the local artist Jake Attree.

Using source material gathered from their trip to Kirkstall Abbey the students developed painting techniques.

Using acrylic paint and palette knives the students used impasto techniques to apply paint thickly, creating interesting textures that helped describe the surface of the crumbling abbey and also referenced the artist Anselm Kiefer who they have been looking at.

Mr Davenport said,

"Jake was extremely complimentary of both the students and their work, commenting on the level of engagement and the general positivity in the room. A great day all round - well done to all concerned."
