Art Update- Spring 1

The students in the Art Department have been so busy this term producing amazing artwork and getting involved in some charitable projects. Find out about their achievements below.

Kissing it Better Murals

We are delighted to be working with the charity Kissing it Better to support patients in local hospitals. Our fantastic year 7 have been asked to create a character mural for someone else to colour in. This is a great opportunity to share our mindfulness and wellbeing project. We are looking forward to sharing this work with the charity after half term. 




Year 7 Mixed Media work

Year 7 have been studying the Artist Jim Dine and we have had some fantastic mixed media work. These are just a few outcomes on display in school. The results are fantastic and year 7 really enjoyed creating stencils and using stained techniques to age their paper.


Year 7 Art Club

Miss Smith has been delivering on a Thursday after school, an Art Club for year 7. One of the topics were self-portraits on a spoon. Here are the fantastic outcomes created. Well done they look fantastic!


Year 8 Exhibition

Year 8 art students were asked to create mixed media collages based around themes of nature. The following students' work was selected to be displayed at the ArtsTrail Gallery Leamington Spa as part of a featured artist’s exhibition currently taking place throughout February and March.


Location: ArtsTrail Gallery, Royal Priors, Leamington Spa

Dates: 4 February – 12 March

Opening Times: 11am – 5.30pm Monday – Saturday

GCSE Art- What you will study

We have many talented young artists in NLS and to showcase some of the fantastic outcomes I have put together a flavour of what our year 9 students have completed for the Surreal Identify Project. Starting with portraiture drawing,  surreal collages, leading onto surreal card construction and independent project work.

If your child is interested in Fine Art GCSE take a look at what will be delivered in year 9:
