Year 5 Art Workshop at the Senior School

The Art Department at Akeley Wood House were delighted to welcome some of our younger members from year 5 to a workshop last Thursday afternoon. We had a brief introduction to Art  in the Senior school and then a demonstration of figure sculpture using plaster. The pupils began by making maquettes from rolled newspaper and then applying layers of plaster impregnated mod roc to create the pose of figure they required. We had great fun making super-heroes, skiers, gymnasts, sky-divers and a whole host of different characters.

The group were a joy to have for the afternoon – let’s hope we can do it again soon.
