Talented artists create stunning Buddhist masks for Religious Studies department

Talented artists have been putting their skills good use for a prominent display for a specific area of the school.

As part of an annual project to bring colour to Rydal Penrhos’ Religious Studies department, Year 8 pupils have been busy making Buddhist masks under the guidance of teacher Suzy Morris.

After a great deal of time and effort, the creations were completed last week and they will now be on display during the entirety of the academic year.

This is just one of many examples of the great work being done by the Art department throughout Rydal Penrhos, with portraits also taking pride of place inside the recently refurbished Dining Room.

Among the paintings situated in Headmaster Simon Smith’s study include the award winning painting from Upper Sixth Form pupil Elysia Gilman, while various Alumni work is also featured in various areas of the school.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Our Art department do a wealth of exceptional work throughout the academic year, and this is a testament to the hard work of our pupils and the superb guidance they receive from the dedicated staff operating within the department.

“This brings an enormous amount of colour to the corridors and departments at Rydal Penrhos and the Buddhist masks made by our Year 8 group are the latest fine example of this.”
