We (the Art faculty) thought it would be a good idea to share some of the amazing work our KS3 students have been sending in from home during this lockdown period.
Being creative can be a wonderful way to relax and help our wellbeing during this uncertain time; take some inspiration from the work below.

Year 7 looked at insects for their first project in Art this year. The final part of the project tasked students to create a mini clay bug inspired by Japanese Netsuke sculptures. Students were taught how to design these using charcoal and then shown mark making into clay in order to produce these wonderful outcomes below.

Our popular Key Stage 3 Art Club runs after school on Tuesdays with Ms Lillywhite. This term, students have focused on drawing skills and have started with experimental techniques such as warm ups, gesture drawings, left handed and continuous line drawings as well as blind contour portraits where they focused on the subject but had to resist looking at the paper!
Next, they will be moving on to create some large scale images and experiment with different materials, line and form.
Above: Continuous blind contour line drawings of a partner using black marker then choosing a colour scheme to paint the shapes and forms with watercolour.
