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!
Year 9 are starting research pages for their GCSE coursework, here are just two examples of very impressive work from home..
Year 10 students have moved away from making their art books on paper and have now been making all their research pages and photography responses online instead. We are particularly excited about this shift, as the art department definitely used a lot of paper, and this in turn had both an environmental and financial impact. We are going to continue this way of working, saving paper for drawing, painting, printing and sculpting, but not printing out research on paper and sticking it on more paper…. cutting and sticking is allowed if we are making collages though! We have reduced our carbon footprint!
Here are some examples of their wonderful portfolios…
Y10 have been uploading their portraits and church paintings for the changing lives project. All the portraits were chosen as they have a historical relationship with St Marylebone church or the locality. There will be more to come…
Year 10 are about to start working on their outcomes, here are some examples of excellent planning sheets..
Really impressed with the Y10 students, working very hard on their portraiture artist research, soon they will begin their mini outcomes.
Dear fantastic art students
We have found a number of rather interesting sketchbooks online, which might inspire you to explore different approaches to drawing. They are really worth looking at (once you’ve opened one, scroll/click through to see the pages) and I hope you feel inspired!
Dynamic colour pencil portraits –
Super cool inky and mixed media works –
Tonal, more ‘realistic’ portraits –
Ruler-line geometric compositions –
A series of paintings that were developed from sketches of the artist’s home environment –
A beautiful sketchbook including drawings with overlapping lines and a cubist sense of shifting facets as people change position –
I am really impressed with Y10’s motivation to make art at home, Many are sending images of their research, painting and drawing. These are some highlights of the work I am receiving online. There are some prints that I took photos of before the shutdown….
