It's been nearly a month since my last up date.
A fortnight after my visit to Selby College I returned to compete the project with the students. During the fortnight the students had had time to work on their designs, working up drawings and deciding how they were going to tackle their sphere.
A visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park to see the exhibition of Peter Randall Page's work had helped inform their designs.
No budding young sculptor should been seen out without her French Manicure ;-)
Group 1 (am)
Group 2 (pm)
I thought the students did a fantastic job and was really pleased with their results. This was the first time any of them had worked in this way. They embraced the challenge and I think the results speak for themselves. These students are aged 16-17 in the main. I couldn't help wonder how I would have approached the project at their age.
