Art installation flies high
A recent art project at Dulwich Prep Cranbrook involving upcycled plastic milk cartons transformed into a flock of birds became a temporary art installation on Tenterden High Street as part of the Christmas shopping weekend. Shoppers and visitors to Tenterden enjoyed viewing the artwork which lit up in the evening as part of the Light Parade.
This is just one of many imaginative projects undertaken by the children at Dulwich Prep Cranbrook. The Good Schools’ Guide 2016 said
‘We’re pretty sure that every school we now visit will have its art compared to the benchmark of Dulwich Prep Cranbrook: truly stunning from the earliest beginnings in Little Stream to the beautiful scholarship work that to our eyes easily compared to GCSE projects elsewhere.’
Dulwich Prep Cranbrook has an excellent reputation for art, with an astonishing 7 major art scholarships won to a host of prestigious senior schools this year alone. All children from aged 3 are involved in inventive projects from sculptures using foraged materials, ceramics and animated films created on iPads. The school combines the process of creating art with the study of artists, designers and crafts-people, both past and present. Artists and designers visit the school regularly to provide practical workshops.
Dulwich Prep Cranbrook has a comprehensive Scholarship and Bursary Scheme, including Art Scholarships for entry into Years 5 & 7. The deadline for entry September 2018 is 4th January 2018. For further details please contact Georgie Labram, Registrar www.dulwichprepcranbrook.org
