Today we took Year 7 students to the Tate Britain to look at the collection of British Art. We wanted to look at the architecture of the buildings and look for paintings, sculptures and other artwork of the urban environment inside the building. Students drew pictures of David Hockney's "Bigger Splash" and many were attracted by this beautiful painting by LS Lowry called "The Pond". Which was your favourite piece of work?

There were some impressive results in the year 7 art tests on Monday. There was excellent understanding shown in the written part and a number of high quality drawings of the fabric swatches. Challonerart awarded 18 credits to students who did well.
Year 9 tests start today. Let's look forward to an equally good set of results.

I always love this half term. We have an art exhibition and this year, Year 7 are going to the Tate Gallery. Year 8 start their fashion project and Year 9 continue the comic strip project..The GCSE group have just started a new project on Japanese Art - I am really looking forward the way that develops.

Do you know all the basic elements of art? Do you understand RED-P? Can you define "compostion"? Revise all this information on the revsion pages for your year group.
The tests are in the first week we return. Good luck.

Have a look at this gorgeous painting by Pablo Picasso. It is called "The Women of Algiers" and it was sold recently in an auction for £103 million. That is a lot of money. More expensive than Gareth Bale.

Today is the final chance for Year 11 to hand in their art coursework. They have been working on this since the end of Year 9 having started the course in the summer holidays between year 9 and year 10. Challonerart hopes they all get everything completed on time.

Take a look at these fabulous wire birds by 8A students. They focused on the basic forms and structures and several made concise and convincing models.

On Thursday and Friday last week, Year 11 Art students spent 10 hours in the Art Room engaged on making their main pieces in their Exam project. They had spent over 10 weeks preparing for this, making sketches, studies and plans on their chosen topic. Some were working on a theme called "Food" and others on one called "Fantastic and Strange." Although it is an exahusting process the students were well prepared and both days went went smoothly. Now they have the long wait until August to find out how well they did.
