College Chapel

Form VI Q Set has begun work on a long-term project which uses the College Chapel as a primary research source. Once the pupils entered the Chapel and began to closely observe the structure and the decorative nature of its interior, they soon discovered a cornucopia of riches with which to whet their artistic appetites!

The pupils took photos, made sketches and rubbings in an effort to record as much information as possible in a double lesson. The numerous motifs, stained glass windows, inscriptions on plaques and glass,  the various carvings in wood and marble, and the patterns in the masonary provided a well of inspiration for the pupils. The next step of the project it to create a number of mood boards which are based on their research work.
