Creative Collage

Collage can mean lots of different paper techniques and can be done in so many creative, unusual and personal ways. My year 9 class have produced some lovely, sleek, crisp pattern designs which would look great put into repeat and used for homewares….

More fantastic responses to the sweets and treats project…

Artist of the Week…

Beautiful and thoughtful responses this week to the exam projects…

Artist pages (Critical Studies)…

No matter what year group you are in or which artist you are researching students often neglect the fact YOUR interpretation of their work is the most important element of the page. I would much rather see a detailed drawing which demonstrates understanding of the artist rather then lots and lots of writing. Some lovely examples of successful artist pages have been handed in this week across year 8 and 9.

Year 9 Exam Project: Food

I have had some lovely outcomes from the year 9s this week for their exam project. Lots of fresh and vibrant collages that would look great put into repeat patterns on homewares and fashion….

What are you like?…

I really enjoy the year 8 exam project because I get to find out a little bit more about my students and their hobbies. The project becomes so personal and individual and thats one of the reasons Art is so great….we can tailor projects to the individual and they can make their work so personal and unique.

Outstanding Year 8 Research Pages…

Some wonderful Andrea Joseph research pages being handed in this week….simply stunning. The detail on these biro trainers is outstanding. Well done.
