The BISL Art Exhibition 2020 celebrates the works created by our students this term, showcasing the skills they have learnt and ideas they have communicated through visual language.

As part of our Creative Arts Block, normally the exhibition would take place in school, however due to current circumstances, it has been made Virtual, allowing the artwork to still be viewed by our whole school community.

Key Stage 3 classes have researched a range of artists related to their project title, including Henri Matisse (Year 7), Caspar David Friedrich (Year 8) and Andy Warhol (Year 9), to name a few. Students have had the opportunity to practice the artist's style before creating their own personal response that demonstrates their interpretation of the topic, as showcased in this exhibition.

The exhibited work of Year 10 provides an insight into their IGCSE coursework produced so far this year, with students having made an exceptional start to practicing new technical skills in drawing and painting.

Our Year 11 and Year 13 students are working towards the completion of their GCSE and A Level courses, with 100% of students currently achieving A*-C grades following their recent assessment. Students of both year groups are each working on independent projects based on their personal interests and passions. You will therefore see a diverse range of artworks and ideas displayed in the respective exhibitions, including interior spaces, the human figure and natural forms.

We have also received some fantastic entries for this year's COBIS Art Competition, through which students from around the world are invited to produce a piece of art that reflects this year's competition theme, 'Connections'. This competition is a fantastic opportunity for our young artists to compete internationally and showcase their talents. So far we've received entries from Key Stage 3, with entries for the Primary categories due in at the start of the New Year.

We hope you enjoy seeing the talents of our creative students through this year's BISL Virtual Art Exhibition.
