News from Art and Photography

Year 12

Year 12 have created some beautiful watercolour experiments. They have really embraced a variety of techniques painting a range of compositions – lovely work!

Year 9

Year 9 have shown Excellent effort in photography this term. Their research pages inspired by the photographer Emily Blincoe were so creative, thoughtful and showed great analysis skills. They created their own flat lay photographs in class from an array of objects. Then finally using a selection of photographic techniques created beautiful product shoots. Well done Year 9.

Year 8

Year 8 have been researching the Mexican festival, ‘Dia de los Muertos’ – Day of the Dead.

We have been introducing our ARTY to each key stage to help students with their research of artists. The Arty is our departments guide, it is adapted for each key learning stage and takes students through each step of what to include on a double layout.

Year 8 produced some informative, clear, and original interesting pages. We are excited to see their sugar skull designs turn into clay sculptures.

Year 12 Photography

Since September, the Year 12 photography students have been learning about the studio and the use of artificial lighting. During autumn, two of the students began their artist research focusing on two well known photographers: Richard Avedon and Lindsey Adler. The students then recreated both photographer work within the studio at school.
