Art and Design
Pupils will experiment with different drawing, shading and mark making techniques and will utilise these skills to produce an observational drawing from still life. Pupils will also study Itten's colour theory, Pollock and Hockney, and will learn how to mix colours with paint to create secondary and tertiary colours. They will learn to manipulate paint to create different hues, tints, tones, harmonising colours and complementary colours and will create a series of abstract paintings. Pupils will learn about Islamic art and will create their own geometric shapes and patterns. Pupils will further develop their colour blending and rendering techniques. Pupils will design and create a monoprint of their interpretation of an Islamic tile.
Pupils will learn about Mexican Culture and art work which will inspire them to create their own colourful plate design, leading onto producing their own ceramic tile inspired from their designs. Pupils will also create insect drawings using ink, utilising a variety of drawing methods. In the final term, pupils will complete detailed observational drawings of natural forms and will create 3d sculptures using found materials, working in the style of various land artists such as Goldsworthy, Long and Shilling.
Pupils will work in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe and will produce a semi-abstract painting using watercolour or acrylic.
Pupils will be inspired by the work of William Morris and will design a wallpaper sample or a tattoo based on his work. In term 3 pupils will create a gridded portrait using pencil, following lessons about symmetry, proportion, division, drawing of facial features and tonal shading.
