The second in our series is a painter who is based in West Yorkshire and who creates images of the landscape and of towns. She uses many layers and different paint techniques in her work and her colours ar sonorous and beautiful. Year 9 students have looked closely at her exciting landscape paintings in their current project.

This is the first in a series where we take a closer look at some of the artist studies in projects across the art curriculaum. Our initial one is Tamara de Łempicka who we are looking at in Year 7. She was born in 1898 and died in 1980 and was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman artist to be a star" Influenced by Cubism, Lempicka became the leading representative of the Art Deco style. She was a favourite artist of many Hollywood stars, referred to as 'the baroness with a brush'. She was the most fashionable portrait painter of her generation among the middle classes and aristocracy, painting duchesses and grand dukes and socialites.

Challonerart loves this iconic face printed by an A-level student. It's based on the work of the artist Tony Bevan.

The most satisfying thing about open morning in the Art Room is the fact that challonerart gets a brilliant opportunity to have a second, longer look at many indidvidual peices and group projects. This doesn't usually get to happen in the busy hustle and bustle of the daily routine in class. We saw the really excellent work on cartoons by last year's year 9 groups and had a closer look at some of the impressive main pieces from the GCSE students. Although being boastful is not a quality to be overly encouraged it is gratifying to reflect on the amazing work that is produced in the art department. Thanks go to all the students for working hard.
Particular thanks to Remy, Marina and Veronica for giving up their time to help out in the Art Room on Saturday!

Zaha Hadid, who designed the 2012 Olympic swimming pool has won the RIBA prize for architecture.She is the first woman to win the prestigious prize. Challonerart saw the building at the Olymics and loved its smooth flowing lines. What do you think?

Julian Opie is much loved in the Art Department at the moment. Year 10 students are looking at his rather cool, dispassionate and highly contemporary portraits in their "Me, Myself and I" project. During the summer break, Challonerart saw an exhibition of his latest work in a gallery in central London. It was full of terrific, urban images that inspired great admiration. Simple yet simply perfect. This image is called "Walking in the Rain", Seoul, 2015.
