Greenfield Students Create Poignant Artwork

posted 8 Feb 2017, 03:24 by
Students from Greenfield Community College at Sunnydale Campus have created some remarkable artwork to commemorate the ‘Battle of the Somme’.

Year 9 students produced the work as part of a nationwide project where students were invited to take part in commemorations for the battle of the Somme. As part of the bigger project they were also asked to produce two pieces of artwork based on the theme of the Somme which could be sent all around the works to be exhibited.

Laura Peaker, teacher of Art at Greenfield Community College was thrilled with the results. The year 9 group decided to produce a digital response where they visited local war memorials to take primary source images. They then collaborated with students from their partnered school in France to create the final artwork, the photographs from both schools were combined to produce thought provoking images.

The artwork has prompted such appreciation that Greenfield Community College and Greenfield Arts are now making these wonderful prints available to the public, all proceeds of which will be donated to Durham Light Infantry Collections.
