Post from Victoria.(The group were far too busy , having fun on the last day)

The group decided they would like a few nibbles on the last day of term,( a party) everybody decided food they would bring. Such a good idea , only the grinch could refuse.
Of course everybody worked hard in the morning session completing individual collage work ( section E) which will be created into a group montage in the new year). Everyone helped to clean and clear away all the art materials at the end of the morning. The group set to work presenting a festive banquet of Christmas nibbles. David and Trevor invited Judith (skills for life secretary) to our feast.
Mr .D kindly entertained us by playing his guitar and singing as we ate. We then spent the remainder of the afternoon playing a game of pictionary on the whiteboard, and eating!

I would just like to say how impressed I am by your work and enthusiam to date. Everyone has worked so hard since September and I am anticipating that you are going to produce fabulous work in the new year. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

Good Luck Heather

Heather popped into to the class to say her final farewell before she jets off to her new life in "Florida" !!! Heather has been a big help and a font of knowledge to myself and the department and college.

We will miss you Heather, Wishing you and your family good luck and happiness in America.

Tom - 25th November 09 Collage

Today we worked on the technique of collage. I had to think of what sort of image I could make into a collage. I decided to make a Mod symbol, like the on I saw at the Mods & Rockers exhibition at Hastings Museum. I collected a range of different papers and sorted them into colour groups. I glued the papers onto different parts of my circle drawing. When I had finished the circle I found letters in magazines . I cut out M O D and stuck the letters in the centre of the collage. Everyone in the group liked my collage.

Tutor comment- I am very impressed by your collage, you worked so neatly and organised. From a distance it looks like a painting, where the colours blend together. It looks great on the wall, Well Done. Vic
