Between the 12th and 19th October, our resident artist, Tony Piggott, kicked off The Big Draw theme ‘Every Drawing Tells a Story” with an exciting ambidextrous portraiture project involving Year 6 to 13 students and Secondary staff.
Tony explains, “Drawing is easy. Like every other skill - The more we draw the better we get. The aim of this project was to remind each student that they have the capacity to draw with both hands and are limited only by their self-belief. Drawing is both fun and rewarding... It clears the mind and synchronizes the brain.”
From the 523 drawings that were created, our resident artist has had the painstaking task of compiling them into a movie that collectively tells our story as a community. The movie will be showcased in the reception foyer and will be on the BSG website. Can you spot your drawing?
Tony Piggott has been working here since October and will continue to be in the studio until the Christmas break. He has lead ‘The Big Draw’ and we have had the privilege of witnessing the evolution of his own drawing and painting projects. We place great value on creativity and the sharing of skills here at BSG and we want to collectively say a big thank you to Tony for being a central part of our creative hub in the Art department this half term.
