A Different Perspective

Grange Art students experienced drawing in new and challenging situations on a ‘drawing weekend’ in the dramatic Snowdonian environs of Cwm Pennant. The Art department organised the trip, the first of its kind, in response to the increasing focus of all exam boards on drawing.

The students started Saturday with a 6:30am start at the beach to experience the emerging light and then a drive to the head of the valley to see the river in spate over the roads and the amazing waterfall of flood water coming down the mountains.

The students worked like demons, drawing from the misty yet dramatic landscape as well as studying natural forms such as plant life, fungi and mosses.

Sunday morning saw the artists visit the beach again and then Criccieth and its castle before heading back to the studio to work on their drawings in the landscape before the rain set in again. It was a really worthwhile and rewarding experience for both staff and students and we are all looking forward to the next event.
