Embossing on Metal
The process of embossing is the technique of creating designs in the metal through stamping, piercing, folding or hammering. Copper, brass and aluminum sheets are a common choice for embossing because it is malleable and not as expensive as other metals, such as gold or silver.
The technique of embossing also is also called "tooling" or "repousse" (pronounced rep-o-zay). These sheets of metal usually have a thickness of 5 millimeters. Thicker sheets may be used, but they cannot be easily cut with scissors, and require greater force when hammering or stamping.
This is a 3D work done by an 11th grader who is taking Art as her HL IB Option, she based her design in Art Nouveau movement, and created this original piece of work.
“Each time I do an artwork I try to make it look different and original, this is the reason I chose to do my work with the metal embossing technique. In this work I have decided to express the freedom, the peacefulness and beauty of nature as a whole. I have always like drawing butterflies this is because my name in Greek means butterfly. The butterflies are like in 3D because I have decided to emphasize them, the flowers are components of nature and this is why I have included them.” Vanessa Durán .11th grade – IB Visual Art.

An awareness of the many uses to which clay is put, both now and in the past, must go hand in hand with children's experience of using the material.
Students from 4th grade had the opportunity to experiment with different types of soil and blend them to make their own suitable clay.

This school year the LRC has launched a new blog which will bring all of these networks together in one place, as well as provide a venue for short informative updates, including the LRC Newsletter which will be uploaded each month for your viewing pleasure.
It is our sincerest hope that you will enjoy our new blog, use it to keep up on the latest in regards to the LRC and feel free to communicate with us through it and the various social networks linked to within.
Here's to the start of a new exciting school year full of innovation in learning.
The LRC Coordinator and Digital Media Artist have prepared 6 after school sessions, over the course of 2 weeks, aimed at teaching students how to make foam puppets. This activity will end with a series of short puppet shows performed by the students on the last day.
Sessions take place from 2:00-3:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Students can sign up using the Google Form in their email inbox.

On Friday the Secondary School marked Peace One Day and the start of the countdown to a Global Truce on 21st september 2012. Our aim is to celebrate peace, kindness and respect for each other and to show there is no place for violence in our community. Peace One Day was started by the British film producer Jeremy Gilley and is a UN supported event. In school we often think of the words of Jeremy Gilley when he said "if each of us do our bit collectively we will make a major contribution". This is true with regards to peace as well as encouraging ABC traits and values in our students. It starts with each one of us doing our bit.
