Ex-Student Makes a Splash in Central London - Lumiere London

22nd January 2016

In 2011 Stormont House School students took part in the ‘ Ron Haselden GAMES Schools Drawing Experience’  this was part of the lead up to the 2012 Olympic Games - the project included children from five Olympic boroughs who worked with the artist Ron Haselden. The aim of the project was to bring sports and art together in a fun and informative way. It highlighted the importance of sport and aimed to educate students about drawing, animation and the human body in action.

 

The students took part in two workshops where they produced a sequential strip of drawings on the theme of the GAMES. All of the student’s drawings were exhibited at Stratford Circus Arts Centre. Aaron’s sequential drawing was selected to be made into a light sculpture which was originally exhibited at Diespeker Wharf in February 2012.

 

If you would like to see the original light sculpture it is available at the following link:

From 14 - 17 January 2016 the light sculpture has been put on display at Kings Cross Pond Club as part of a weekend festival of lights, where light structures were displayed on Oxford Street, the Mall, Piccadilly and Regent Street. The exhibits were displayed each night from dusk until 10.30pm - 30 light-based artworks were displayed across buildings which included Westminster Abbey, light structures were displayed in Trafalgar, Grosvenor and Leicester squares.
