A Walk Along the River Severn with Jake Attree
Last week the Art School welcomed Jake Attree as their artist in residence. Jake is a figurative artist in the sense that everything he paints is based on something he has observed and almost certainly drawn. No matter how far the paintings may depart from the subject that inspired them, they nevertheless are rooted in and dependent upon these initial observations.
Jake took a drawing session with each Lower Fourth (Year 7) class along the banks of the river, where he drew with them. These drawings will be included in a concertina booklet which each pupil will produce and will also include a black and white photo of the river, an etch and a poem. These booklets will be exhibited in the Art School from 7th to 23rd November.
