Sidmouth College students create Aboriginal art

Art met science as a Sidmouth College class channelled Aborigines to create a mural of the carbon cycle this term.

Year Seven students used the traditional ‘x-ray’ and dot painting styles of the Australian natives to paint the 8ft by 4ft image, which was displayed in Kennaway House during the science festival.

They also took inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’ and Andre Derain’s ‘Boats in the Port of Collioure’, for a painting of the Jurassic Cliffs of Sidmouth’s coastline.
