The annual Bellver International College Art Week opened its doors to parents, family, friends and the general public to the captivating theme "The Circus".
Festive flags and children’s drawings, along with the history of the circus deck the stairway to the school hall that has been transformed into an amazing circus. Music plays while an expectant audience of self portraits, painted by the entire student body, surrounds the hall.
The centre of the room has a large red and white striped crêpe paper tent, which houses life size papier-mâché sculptures of the master of ceremonies, a trapeze artist on a bar, a leopard that juggles golden balls on his tail, a sloth that hangs from a drape and a tiger wary of jumping through a ring of fire.
Another ring has a baby elephant. A crocodile waits in water ready to devour a skater jumping over it from a ramp. Nearby, a large horse with a diva on his back stands gallantly.
There are clowns that juggle, an ape with balloons, a Chihuahua on a skateboard, a magician on stage releasing doves from his magic hat, a seal dressed up as a sailor, an acrobat, a strongman, a poodle, a bear on a monocycle, a turtle fortune teller and last but not least, a cotton candy and popcorn stand.
The displays along the walls are filled with recurrent circus themes from all the Bellver students.
This years Art Week is a delight to the viewer and well worth seeing!
