Carlos Cortes Illuminations workshop

Before the half term break we were lucky enough to have another excellent workshop from Carlos Cortes, a local performance and installation artist. Our students relished the opportunity to create their own individual light fans, which were then displayed in the Nottingham Light festival last weekend. Below are photos from the workshop and also their work at the event.

Asya- Arts Award Part B

On the 11th of December , I visited the Hornimum Museum. I really liked the variety of exhibitions of animals such as the monkeys and the birds. There was also a lot of cultural exhibitions about tribes and their way of life. I didn't like how busy it was, however I had a good time looking at the cool animals. I thought the exhibitions were pretty amazing as there were extinct animals such as the Dodo, which were really realistic as well as the bones and anatomy of living creatures. I expected the museum to have more animals that are exotic. Being a spectator at the museum made me interested in the types of animals that were there and how I could create a surreal painting, using the exhibits as inspiration. I would recommend the Hornimum museum to someone else as there is a variety of exhibits that are inspirational for artwork.
