Senior School Art Exhibition
The Senior School Art Room is currently showcasing this year’s GSCE, AS and A Level art pieces. The exhibition is open to all visitors until after the VISO weekend (24th and 25th June). Parents, family and friends are encouraged to come and view the impressive range of artistic skills and interpretations.
Creative variety and quality
Students studying Art at St Andrew’s Senior School are given flexibility to choose their own artistic projects. This flexibility, with the teachers’ support and encouragement, culminates in a vast range of pieces and journeys of discovery. The Edexcel Chief Examiner recently commented on the ‘creative variety and the quality of the exhibition’. The Art teachers, Mrs Sally Clarke and Mr Peter Keay, were also pleased with the students’ efforts. “We are thrilled with the students’ hard work and dedication over the last two years”, said Sally Clarke, Head of Art at Senior School.
Recent Art Awards
The department recently received an award in the 2017 AISA Art Challenge (Association of International School in Africa), with Kylian Molenaar announced as a winner of the competition and two other students (Fatsani Keay and Precious Seronga) receiving Runners Up certificates for their intriguing art pieces.
What students feel about Art
Many students love studying Art at St Andrew’s Senior School, with a good number going on to read Bachelor Degrees in Graphic Design and Illustration at prestigious universities in the UK next year. Ariana Manduku, a Year 10 student recently wrote about the Art room. “It feels like a place where I can express all my emotions. The art room has no rules (like a game of netball) and nor formulas (like a mathematical equation). There is no wrong answer and no wrong emotion”.
