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.
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!
