During the trying times of the Covid pandemic, art students at Archbishop Beck have behaved commendably and coped with the disruption to normality admirably.
Changes have meant that the practical aspects of art have been less accessible than usual. However, it was decided within the department that; circumstances aside, the students should be given the opportunity to showcase their skills and creativity- As anticipated they didn’t let the college down!
Art students from each year group were asked to design ‘Alternative Christmas trees’ based on famous works of art. From Pop Art to Surrealism, the ideas came flooding in and as tough a decision as it was, two students from each year group had their ideas selected and recreated on 6ft trees, displayed in the college.
The chosen designs were:
Staff within the department worked flat out to recreate the designs on 6ft trees (kindly made by Mr Gallagher and Mr Kenny) A huge well done to all students and staff involved in, once again, showcasing the fantastic artistic talent within our College.
