Arts Week at Newpark gives students the opportunity to try out art in a variety of forms which includes hand weaving, stop motion, installation art, sound and drama.
Trudy Feighery led her students in a hand weaving workshop which incorporated the use of found and upcycled materials. The students experimented with different colours, textures and fabrics to create unique and creative woven artefacts. Within these pieces you will be able to find hidden messages, reflections and observations made by the students in response to their own experiences of lockdown.
Stop motion workshops were held by Naomi Good in which students created animated short films. Students photographed static objects that were brought to life on the screen using animation techniques. These films will be shown in the LexIcon Lab space at specified times during opening hours.
David King explored the exciting world of installation art. This work challenges the boundaries between painting, sculpture and the environment and culminates in large collaborative art pieces and kinetic art installations.
