Year 8 Transatlantic Art Exchange
Our Year 8 artists are participating in a transatlantic sketchbook exchange project with our partner school, The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur in Philadelphia.
This is a wonderful initiative to get students to actively take part in creating personal pieces of art, with students being partnered up and then creating a handmade concertina sketchbook based on student led themes. These include: Who am I? What is it like being a girl? Where have my family come from?
Following the initial Google Meets at the end of April, 25 Year 8 students have been working on their creations. The sketchbook books will be completed and then sent over to their partners in Philadelphia and vice versa. Here is a sneaky peek of a couple of our Year 8s’ lovely sketchbooks!
