Famous paintings have been used as inspiration for jewellery pieces in a project by our Year 10 Art Extension students.
Using polymer clay, students have made pendants replicating famous artworks including Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night and Claude Monet’s Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies and Impression, Sunrise.
Teacher Meg Henderson said the task was part of the art history studies.
“Students got to choose an artist that interested them and they have worked with the clay to make intricate jewellery pieces, being careful to replicate the art technique and brushstrokes with the clay, which is not an easy thing to do,” she said. “The final pieces are a beautiful reflection of their interpretation of the art.”
