A group of enthusiastic and talented pupils meet after school each week to deepen their creative experiences, develop ideas further and choose a wider range of techniques and media. They are inspired by artist studies and partnership projects.
The school grounds provided inspiration for our talented artists.
Art Club explored Print Techniques
Pupils worked on ceramic tiles in partnership with East Midlands Airport
Art Club have been creating iconic images of the East Midlands on ceramic tiles. We hope to display them at East Midlands Airport.
Do you recognise landmarks, sport clubs, culture and entertainment venues?
Hoodwinked BookBench Project (Sponsored by East Midlands Airport)
Congratulations to the talented artists at the Milford Academy who designed, drew and painted an amazing BookBench. Pupils created a design that represented a reading journey through the Milford Academy showing the diverse genres and interesting authors children meet along the way!
Pupils sketched out ideas on paper, planned the areas faintly on the unpainted bench then created the design using acrylic paints and posca pens for outline detail. Finally, the BookBench was varnished.
Georgia O’Keeffe artist study
Art Club have been inspired by the artist Georgia O’Keeffe to create their own work in pastels, chalk. oils and watercolours.
Faces proved an interesting topic for Art Club and shading techniques were developed while focussing on specific features.
Outstanding art work from Milford pupils!
