As soon as we got back into the classroom we could focus on large scale painting, sculpture or printing! Year 10 have been doing the later…
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…
As part of the Marylebone changing lives project. Students are creating artwork for the church to use in many different and exciting ways, from the hoardings abs more. Today the used their five hour pre-mock to paint people from their own research that have had a history with the church… they are amazing!
Some made engravings of the church it self, and the details within it!
Two classes of Y7 enjoyed looking at the work of ten screen printing artists on exhibition near school. They heard about the artists’ interest in experimentation, colour and process. Next week, they have an exciting workshop from one of the exhibiting artists.
Thanks for showing us around Bonnie and Daisy
