Art: Year 7 Artists Wax Lyrical

In Year 7 art lessons St Andrews International School Bangkok students learn about batik.

Year 7 artists at St Andrews International School Bangkok have been working on a project called ‘Habitats of the World’, in which they have been designing images to be made into a giant batik wall hanging. The work will be entered into a global competition run by the Natural History Museum in London. Work for the competition sees the return to the Art Department of the ancient process of batik. Originally from Indonesia, batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Here are some of the Year 7 students enjoying the challenging technique, creating some beautiful habitat designs.

Artist of the Week

Our artist of the week is Year 8 student Faye, who created a fantastic digital design for a potential ‘land art’ monument. Her work imagines how the enormous geometrical monument would be seen, against a fading sunset.
