The King’s Art Department has put together a new challenge, ‘A Landscape a Day’. Throughout the month of March, the Art Department is going to exhibit ‘A Landscape a Day’, and we want pupils, parents, staff, OVs and friends of King’s to contribute by getting creative.
As we are all currently spending more time in front of screens and less time outside, this initiative set up by the art department is intended to get us outdoors and encourage a little bit of creativity. Everyone is invited to submit up to three landscape drawings, paintings or photographs, the best of which will be published on the art department’s Twitter each day and shown in a virtual 3D exhibition at the end of the month. We will also be updating this page with the best landscape pieces submitted. There will be prizes on offer for the best overall entries.
Feel free to interpret the term ‘Landscape’ however you wish, the most inventive and creative interpretations will most likely catch the judges’ eye. You might record a family ramble over the Malvern Hills, a solitary walk through the woods, or simply the landscape you can see through your bedroom window. Whether it is a beautiful sunny morning or a cold bleak winter wonderland, get outside, get creative and submit your artwork! To gain some inspiration from existing artists of different landscape ideas, take a look at some examples on our Firefly page.
The Landscape a Day Project was initiated by the Art Department to encourage the pupils, parents and friends of The King’s School to go out into the landscape during lockdown and unleash their creativity. The response was overwhelming, and the painting, drawing and photography submitted were impressive and varied. Some of the images were published on social media throughout March and every entry is now brought together in an exhibition to showcase the talent and creativity of the King’s community. Thank you to everyone who took part, we hope you enjoyed producing your work, and we hope that everyone enjoys this wonderful exhibition. The winning entries came from Katy C-F URCl for her delicate painting of a church, Upper Fourth pupil Monty H who entered a stunning photograph of Blue Canyon, and parent Sarah Barwell who photographed her late afternoon winter walk. Each will receive a little travel painting kit to help them maintain their artistic talents.
