Last week our year 9 students were lucky enough to spend the day working with artist, Ian Murphy. This workshop was part of the immersion for our new expedition and allowed the students to spend the day improving their own practice and studying the beautiful canvasses, sketches, paintings and sketch books that Ian brought in to show us.
9 Admiral started 2020 with some beautiful work embossing designs into aluminium. This is their first try using this material and they did a great job!
We could really use some more aluminium to work on so we’d be very grateful if anyone can donate un-dented, rinsed drink cans for the students to use. Please bring any donations to X05.
As part of their immersion tasks this week, Admiral will be using aluminium drinks cans as a material for some art work. If you have any undented, rinsed drinks cans at home it would be helpful if you could bring some in for your sessions on Monday and Thursday
A number of students from X24 have been working extremely hard both in lesson and also in the completion of their extended study. They have completed these tasks to a high standard and also made sure that they have been handed in on time.
The students that I would like to give a special mention to are Alfie Lockey (X24 Admiral), Bella Herring (X24 Skipper) and Amber Clark (X24 Skipper) who have all finished the two studies (paper cut and sharpie block design) in class and also their extended study (Artist research).
All three of these students are now well on the way to creating a lovely charcoal study for their developing and exciting art portfolio.
Well done Alfie, Amber and Bella! Keep up the good work!
X24 have been giving kind, specific and helpful peer critiques to each other to make improvements to create beautiful work.
They have been looking at lino cuts by an artist called Karl Schmidt. They have chosen two different designs to produce two A3 designs:
- One using a black sharpie pen on white paper
- One using a craft knife to carefully cut back paper.
