Postcards

The following drawings were create by a class of year 8’s. Their task was to imagine what the rest of a landscape could have been outside of a found postcard image. This as a drawing exercise not only pushed their own boundaries but also showed an insightful approach to creative thinking.

Portraiture

Recently a class of year 9’s have completed a painting and drawing unit with the genre of portraiture. They created these paintings using a restricted colour palette, using only 3 colours and black and white. They learnt about tonal differences in mixing colours as well as achieving cool and warm tones. The students showed a strong enjoyment and motivation when creating these artworks. The paintings are currently on display in our front admin building.

This term a group of year 8 students have had the opportunity to learn the method of silk painting to create their own scarf artwork. The theme of this unit of work was inspired by the song ‘the message’ by the famous Hip Hop legend Grandmaster Flash. Students learnt about the time in which this song was created, and how it influenced the development of funk to hip hop in music history. The students created silk paintings that were engulfed in jungle imagery and combined these with subtle imagery of the reality of the song. Here are a few images of students working on their artworks
