MORETON HALL ART WORKSHOP

Moreton Hall Art Workshop

Girls in Forms 6, 7 and 8 were invited to attend an Art Workshop at Moreton Hall on Friday 16th January. 

 

The pupils learned about Romuald Hazoume, one of Africa's leading artists. Romuald has exhibited his work in major museums and galleries all over the world. he is known for his photography and scultures but mainly for his mask series which he started in the 1980's.

Romuald produces traditional African masks from discarded gasoline canisters and materials which he finds washed up on the beaches where he lives.

During the art workshop the pupils drew a milk carton from an unusual angle, applying their skills to create a 3D effect using tonal shading and converted a milk carton into a fun, imaginary knight's helmet.  The girls enjoyed experimenting with the different paints, tools, materials and equipment.

A very enjoyable day was had by all and a big thankyou to Lizzie and Jan from Moreton Hall.
