GCSE Year 10 current work

Here are some photos of Miss Silverstein’s excellent year 10 artwork during a recent review of their work. Some fabulous work, they have all been working hard experimenting with a wide range of media very successfully. Well done!

Year 10 Homework Examples..

Year 10 were asked to complete a six box composition inspired by their natural forms theme. They used a variety of different media to achieve this. A set of very pleasing outcomes. Some are still works in progress. Great work!

Showing your “workings out”…

It’s just as valuable and important to show your experiments and working out when in Art too like you would have to in Maths. It’s just done in a different way! This shows some lovely watercolour testing, showing a wide range of colour mixing skills, getting it just right before it gets put on her actual painting. We love seeing evidence of this in your sketchbooks so never discard it. It forms part of the assessment objectives so is very valuable


GCSE and A’Level Annotation Help Sheets…

The syllabus has changed slightly this year and there is more emphasis on annotating your work. 

I have developed these guide sheets to help students achieve purposeful and relevant Annotation. It should be an integral aspect of any art students creative journey. Hopefully it can help….
