At the start of Year 12 our girls completed a drawing module. This year they looked succulents. Each week (of the 4 week module) they looked at different sources: Primary sources, secondary sources – found images, secondary sources – their own photos, (wow, the quality of their photos improved) and then in their last week they looked at artists as a source. This was a successful module which they are already reflecting back on to inform their Unit 1.
This fun ‘Draw Yourself’ project really got Yr8 engaged with drawing after they returned from the summer holidays. In Yr7 they had learnt about the proportions of a standard face but this short project took their drawing skills to the next level. Well done Year 8!
Well done to Year 8 for creating these Robots and a big thank you to Elsbeth for creating this video and to Olivia for helping her.
Yesterday six pupils, Jessica, Chloe, Megan, Alex, Jess and Megan (Year 11) created beautiful solar plate etchings at Neo Artists studios in Bolton. The girls created their own solar plates and printed them in black and white and colour. The workshop was run by artist Denis Whiteside and artist Jacqui Priestey was on hand to help. The prints they created are drying but will be up on the blog soon.
I couldn’t resist photographing today as girls finished off work which will be exhibited in two weeks time in their GCSE exhibition. All the work below has been stimulated by looking at different cultures.
