The wonderfully talented Natasha Clutterbuck artist and illustrator, visited Godolphin’s Art Department last week to start this year’s Artist in Residence scheme. Natasha is famous for creating images of fruit and vegetables from first hand sources. A keen gardener, she draws directly from the plants that she grows and occur in local hedgerows. She uses natural dyes and pigments in her work creating studies using local earth and homemade charcoal.
Last Spring and Summer, Natasha set a project for our pupils to grow their own produce; charting the progress from seed to final vegetable using a range of drawing and photographic techniques.
On Friday she introduced her work and working methods to a range of examination students throughout the day and in particular to this year’s GCSE Fourth Year pupils.
We look forward to welcoming Natasha back to school on Sunday 21 January when she will run an all-day workshop demonstrating some of the materials, techniques and processes that she uses in her work
