Sculpture Trip an Inspiration to Students

On 13 June, fourteen Art Ambassadors from Years 7 to 9, travelled to Quenington on the edge of Cirencester to visit the Fresh Air Sculpture Show. This exhibition is in its 13th year of running at the Old Rectory. The gardens were full of beautiful, intriguing sculptures designed and brought to life by a variety of talented artists. We spent several hours looking around the large grounds with original art everywhere. These included a metal cage carved into intricate patterns by Jeni Cairns, a lifesize bronze greyhound, and felt letters stitched together into interesting phrases inspired by World War One poets, by Bailey Curtis. Plus there was even some art by a previous Stroud High student. The range of media used to create the exhibit was very varied, such as bronze, glass, plastic and felt. When we drove back to Stroud High at the end of an engaging day we headed to the computers to edit and look back at the photos we had taken. A selection of these are included below. Overall, it was a motivational day!
