We have investigated how to draw the human figure in our sketchbooks.
We then looked at how the sculptor, Giacometti, sculpted the human figure in metal. We practised drawing in proportion and then studied our own bodies during P.E. and our gymnastics lesson.
We have been challenged by Mrs Kirk to make 2 figures depicting a mirror, matching or counter balance with a 2 figure sculpture.
Today we all gained 3 dojo points for perseverance.
We have studied the sculpture of British artist, Anthony Caro.
We experimented and played with shapes to create abstract sculptures. We considered the 3-d nature of our maquettes; how they changed from different angles, how some angles were better than others, which positions seemed to have more energy than others, how the sculpture worked in relation to the table, did the colours enhance or distract and finally the interaction when viewed on a coloured surface.
We were adventurous and individual despite starting with similar shapes. We persevered whilst making the sculpture self-supporting.
Still Life with shading and tone
We improved our observational studies by drawing a still life with fruit and shiny teapots. We added extra challenge by drawing in candlelight to further explore how we can create atmosphere through shading. We had investigated shading in our sketchbooks but now used our manipulation of materials for a significant drawing.
