Art & Design Mural paintings
During Activity Week 2019 19 Year 9 students designed and painted murals in the corridors to enhance the visual environment of Hurstmere.
The boys worked collectively to produce a long corridor piece in Art and Geography. The theme was to reflect ‘Hurstmere Characteristics’ – they discussed what characteristics that Hurstmere pupils value and work towards during their time at the school. These included – humility, confidence, creativity, hygiene, love, health, happiness, resilience, motivation, imagination, thoughtfulness, sense of humour, ambition, smartness and ability to ‘multi-task’! The group designed characters to represent each chosen ‘characteristic’. The piece was then made as a large wall collage – using a mixed-media approach.
The pupils also completely reworked our ‘Art & Music murals to give them a new lease of life.
The ‘Art Department’ mural outside Room 21 was completely redesigned and painted to great effect – special mention to Alfie Burgess year 10, undertook this large-scale task ably assisted by Sonny Smith and Alfie Wade.
