The last week before half term brings many interesting activities to the art room; Year 7 will be starting their final project of the year and year 8 will be looking forward to building wire insects. Year 9 are starting a project on cartoon strips and Y10 are having assessments. Meanwhile, Mr Coultart is in the process of marking all GCSE and A-level work.

Have a look at some of McCullin's striking images.

The great photographer Don McCullin is 8o this year and Charlotte Sorapure has painted this compelling portraitof him. McCullin is famed for his photographs of urban squallor and war zones. His images are striking and thought-provoking. You cannot help looking at them even if you want to turn away.

There is a competition, run by Mrs Anderson, to design a Stained Glass Window for the school.
"I have opened up a competition for all pupils of the school to design a new stained glass section for the window on the top landing of the main building. You will notice from the photograph that part of the stained glass is missing. It must include the crest. All entries must be given to Mr Coultart by the 7th June."
Check the photograph and get designing!

Good luck to all those in 8A who are having their art test tomorrow. Remember to use a full range of shading in your shell drawings....and then develop, develop, develop for part two.

Well done to all the GCSE Art students who had to hand 2 years worth of coursework in today. Hope everyone completed everything. I really look forward to seeing it all over the next two weeks and marking it....

Today, had a good discussion with 9A about how to improve our lessons. There are some seriously talented students in that group and sadly, several are underachieving at the moment. A couple of clear suggestions came form the students; We will try to fit in two projects before the end of the year; one on cartoon strips and another on fashion design. Glad we did the survey...

Challonerart has always been a huge fan of Hokusai and his picture, 'Under the Wave off Kanagawa' ('The Great Wave') is probably the most iconic Japanese artwork in the world. The print was created when he was about 70 years old, and was made using colour woodblock printing. Many thousands of impressions were made and each one sold quite cheaply. When it was first issued, in about 1830, Japan's contact with the outside world was strictly regulated. It was only in 1859 when Japan opened a few of its ports, that Japanese prints began to be exported to Europe. They were quickly discovered and celebrated by European and American artists like Whistler, Van Gogh and Monet. The Great Wave inspired Debussy's symphonic sketches La Mer and has become one of the most memorable images of the power of the sea
