Art and Design

Good to be me, good to be back!


We had a great first day back developing our sketching skills.  We had different attempts at drawing eyes and noses.  Just look at the progress we made from our first attempts......



We have been exploring the work of artists who use wire in their artwork, such as Barbara Licha and Celia Smith.  We then became wire artists ourselves to create our own bird wire sculptures.

The Big Draw


We had a fun afternoon developing our drawing and sketching skills of flowers.  Instead of working in our sketchbooks, we worked as a group on a long roll of paper which stretched across our table.  It was quite tricky to draw the flowers from still life!




We have been learning all about how mosaics were used in Ancient Roman times and watched a video clip of a mosaic that has recently been uncovered in Leicester.  After our research, we explored geometric patterns and created our own mini mosaics.  Finally, we found out about the work of a contemporary mosaic artist called Jason Dussault and compared Ancient Roman mosaics with the modern artwork he creates.


















Although we haven't been in school, that hasn't stopped us from learning about art.  We looked at a painting of Romeo and Juliet, our class text and reflected on what the artist was trying to say and the techniques they used.  
To link with our English work on 'The Highwayman', we have been experimenting with charcoal and graphite sticks to begin to create an eerie forest scene.

Brutalist Architecture


We have started our new genre in Art by learning about Brutalist Architecture.  We first of all discussed what an architect does and what their job might entail.  We looked closely at photos of Britain after WW2 and learned about why cities needed regeneration after the war.  We have been exploring the angular shapes and repeated patterns from a Brutalist building in London called Robin Hood Gardens.

We have been thinking about how environment might affect how people live and thinking more about the brutalist style of architecture.  We have also been working on drawing with perspective.
