ACS Hillingdon students channel inner picasso

Published Thursday 7th of February 2013 11:12:35 AM

Over twenty students from ACS Hillingdon channelled their inner Picasso at the Inkspot Press in Brighton. Using a variety of techniques including lino cuts, silk screen printing and acrylic resist etching, the students were able to experiment with a variety of artistic styles compiling their own portfolios.

This is the sixth year the International Baccalaureate visual art students at ACS Hillingdon have attended the workshop in Brighton. The Inkspot workshop provides a vital source of inspiration for the students. The group have to produce a comprehensive portfolio of 18 works on their chosen theme, using a broad range of media which will be displayed at the school�s IB art show later this spring.

All students were able to begin creating their art portfolio under the guidance of experts at the Inkspot Press, who are able to demonstrate a range of printmaking skills needed to develop a body of work. Students were also able to absorb the architecture and broader Brighton culture to contextualise their work.

Barbara Birchall, Head of Art at ACS Hillingdon commented:

�I look forward to the confidence that emerges from the students as the prints roll off the press. I especially like the last hour of the course when the students pack their portfolios and see the amount they have achieved. Students always benefit from trips away from their local environment and return with an abundance of ideas as a result.�
