This weekend the Alpha girls warmly welcomed their family and friends to their Christmas exhibition. The work represents of the autumn terms art practice and they were delighted to present their final pieces in Fitzwilliam. The theme for this project was ‘looking up’ and started in September with a trip to Tarantino Gunville woods to sketch and photograph the fantastic ancient oak trees. With this inspiration the girls returned to the classroom and worked in the sketchbooks drawing, collecting inspiration from other artists and finalising their compositions.
The second half of term was spent creating the paintings and sculptures that are on view today and are a great representation of the fantastic work this group have produced.
Connie’s beautiful wire and paper mache sculpture expresses the shape and structure of the original inspiring field sketches she collected.
Well done to all the girls for a fantastic end of term exhibition.
