Wings School Notts are running weekly Sculpture Workshops at as part of several new developments within the Art Department. Pupils have been developing their skills In clay modelling around a wire frame and papier mache modelling using willow to build the shapes.
There has also been soapstone carving and print and mask making using clay and mixed media.
This summer the school plans to construct earth sculptures around the grounds based on local wildlife, flora and fauna. These will complement some of the wire sculptures of birds they have already completed.
The classes have proved very popular with excellent attendance from all groups showing bags of enthusiasm and having fun which is vital to the pupils learning experience and well-being.
