Art / Enrichment Week 2018


Year 8 spent some time this year focusing on the theme of Portraiture during Art lessons, and their progress and hard work has been particularly impressive.

Many students when faced with the task of drawing a portrait, were understandably nervous, but after a few lessons, armed with knowledge of proportions and techniques, together with a drop of positivity, all students produced fantastic work! Work progressed from large scale drawings using different media to a 3 dimensional Papier-mâché ‘Head’ inspired by the artist Alberto Giacometti. From the photos below, it is clear to see just how far these students progressed, from their first tentative scribble drawings on brown paper, through more refined pen and wash, until finally they produced their highly refined, individual 3D characters.
