We do lots of printmaking, both in its own right, but also as a development process towards painting outcomes. I love the way these students have explored the medium of print for both final outcomes and process.
Our sixth form students have been working very hard this term, Y12 have been developing their painting and drawing skills and Y13 have been working towards their mock exam in December. These are just some of the highlights.
There are two fantastic opportunities here for you to submit work you have already made, or make something specific to enter, The Westminster competition asks you to respond to one of a few themes/ issues, the RA competition is an open call. Details attached here, good luck and just follow the attached instructions, please do email your art teacher and let them know you have applied!
This wasn’t the way we expected to start 2021 but as we do like to find the positive…. there are many artists who have developed their practice in unexpected ways by the confinements of working at home… Firstly though, here’s some Level work from the end of last term just to bring some joy… Their work is fantastic…
Some more examples of fabulous painting from our Y12 cohort at home.. There will be more exciting work coming, Watch this space!
Students often ask about using sketchbooks. They are not like Art Coursework books, where you might work through a project or journey… Instead they are small, carry around with you collections of drawings in which you might try and capture a person, a scene or object. The key is experimentation, different materials, and using lots of mark-making to capture something.
These are examples of our A’Level sketchbooks, they are small (often A5) and we really like their expressiveness..
