St Hildas School

Celebrating St Hilda’s Centenary with a Week of Art

The girls have unleashed their creativity and produced some amazing pieces of art this week!

Over the week each class has explored a different way of capturing nature in art such as using collage, fabric and even high-tech 3D printing.  There’s been an Art Trail around the school and the girls have been taking a closer look at the pieces of art displayed and thinking about them.

Sketching with Poppy Blakiston-Houston

The school's founding Headmistress, Miss Violet Curry, was an avid artist who kept detailed nature diaries full of beautiful watercolour paintings and the girls have been using these diaries as inspiration to create some amazing sketches and paintings of Spring flowers.  They’ve had some help and guidance from our artist in residence for the week Poppy Blakiston-Houston

The girls have also worked with clay to create nature themed sculptures with ceramic artist, Richard from Claydayz.  It’s been a wonderful and enlightening week of art!  What a great way to celebrate the school’s history!
