Over 120 students and staff created a ceramic poppy to be added to Archbishop Beck’s own mini version of the installation art “Weeping Window”. The art work, previously featured at the Tower of London, is to be unveiled at St Georges Hall, Liverpool on Saturday 7th November.
The art department thought that creating our own mini version would be a poignant tribute to the War dead and a way of demonstrating how art can be a powerful means of portraying a message.
Students from KS3-KS5 took part and created an eclectic and interesting mix of poppies. Year 9 students also created a powerful painting to sit alongside our cascading poppies.
