Art work­shop in­spires pupils to get cre­ative

Oldham Advertiser - - NEWS -

YOUNG­STERS took in­spi­ra­tion from their school build­ing to cre­ate fas­ci­nat­ing pa­per sculp­tures.

Year 8 stu­dents at The Radclyffe worked with artist Gemma Wright to cre­ate the origami de­signs based on pho­to­graphs and draw­ings of the state-of-the-art school in Chad­der­ton.

Art teacher Amy Wil­son said: “The stu­dents are thrilled to be work­ing with Gemma. Her work takes a very con­tem­po­rary ap­proach, which stu­dents don’t of­ten ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The work­shop was of­fered as a re­ward to pupils who had shown ‘ex­cep­tional progress’ in art. The fin­ished items will be dis­played in school.
