Year 9 are starting research pages for their GCSE coursework, here are just two examples of very impressive work from home..
We are so impressed with the remote learning from many of our Year 8 students. Their portfolios are well presented and filled with excellent quality work. We have been asking them to spend time on their tasks, and it definitely shows that they have…
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…
These examples of Y7 artist research studies from their colourful landscapes unit are fantastic! Using a range of materials (what every they can get their hands on), they have created such bright and joyful pieces, an antidote to lockdown!
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!
