Christmas at the Bishop’s Palace Upcycled Art

The Junior School and Senior School Art Departments teamed up again this year to create a piece of artwork for the annual Christmas competition at the Bishop’s Palace, with the challenge being that the piece of art had to be made up of predominantly recycled materials. Pupils from Years 5 and 6 in the Junior School and from Years 7, 8 and 9 in the Senior School worked collaboratively during their recent weekly Art Clubs to create a mixed-media wall hanging based on the carol Once in Royal David’s City. They have imaginatively ‘upcycled’ a multitude of pre-used materials including pairs of worn out jeans, newspapers, old wax candles, redundant canvas from a previous set design and old upholstery fabrics.
