The Spring term is a busy and exciting time in the Art Department. Our year 11 students start work on their GCSE exteranally set task whilst the year 10 students continue with a project called "Text and Image". In Key stage 3 Year 9 start a new project on "Pop Art", taking a trip to the Tate Gallery in the process and Year 8 will begin looking at one of the most influential styles of modern art, Cubism, for their next project. Year 7 students are going to get to grips with printing techniques in their project on fabric design. Meanwhile, we have lined up an interesting trip for the Sixth Form as they start their new project about the human form. Much to look forward to.
