HCS hosts print workshop for Herefordshire schools
Pupils from four Herefordshire schools enjoyed a print workshop hosted by Hereford Cathedral School yesterday as part of the HCS outreach programme.
The fourteen Year 10 and 11 students from Tenbury High School, St Mary's High, Aylestone School and Lady Hawkins joined HCS Head of Art Mr Wilkes and Art Teacher Mrs Ruleman for a session in dry point etching.
The day started with a visit to Hereford Cathedral, where the students used digital photography to capture some interesting compositions. Next they created their own drawings based on the images they had captured on camera. They were next introduced to the concept of dry point etching.
The students finished the day having completed pieces of work that they may wish to use as part of the ‘portfolio’ unit of their GCSE.
Mr Wilkes commented: "The students achieved some truly exceptional work. It was a wonderful, dynamic and thoroughly enjoyable day."
Many thanks to all the schools involved in this HCS outreach event.
