Challonerart was very impressed by the conduct and application of many of the students when we visited the Tate on Wednesday. Before entering the gallery we had a tour of the local area and spotted 5 sculptures dotted around the apartment blocks and shops that surround the Tate, including ones made of stone, one cast in bronze and one statue of a male figure that made several students feel uneasy because it moves. In the gallery we looked specifically at sculpture on the 4th floor. Particular favourites seemed to be two sculptures of trees, a bright blue crystalised engine and a large mirrored box.

The themes on the exam paper this year are "Food", "Fantastic and Strange", "Spirals" and "Water". The GCSE students are currently starting their exam project and trying to select which one would be best for them. Which one would you choose?

We just had a fantastic lesson working on some abstract black and white collages. Everyone in the group worked productively with several individuals receiving credits. Challoner Art is impressed by the standard and application. Looking forward to next week's lessons!

Challonerart has set up the Year 11 GCSE students for their Mock Art exam. We had a meeting after school yesterday to discuss eveyone's plans and ensure that they are confident about what they are doing on the day. You have to feel sorry for them because when everyone else has an extra day off on Monday 5th Jan, they will be in school engaged in 5 hours of work!

Have a look at the examples in this link Front Cover Designs and then have a go at designing your own. Look at the current design and see if you can make something more visually striking.
Bring the results to the art department after the Christmas break.

This week Year 9 students have started a new project about Pop Art. We will be studying Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton and Peter Blake, artists who had a significant impact on the Art of the 1960s and whose work still resonates today. Challonerart looks forward to the results.
