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.

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.

It has been a great start to the summer term in the Art Dept. After the success of the Abstraction project Year 7 began a looking at architecture as they prepared for making a small clay model in May. This week both classes drew from photographs of doorways. Year 8 are getting seriously into Typography, starting this week with lessons on how to space lettering in a balanced fashion. Several students really excelled at this.
Most of the focus this week, though, has been on the GCSE Fine Art exam which began today. Having completed the first 5 hours today things look encouraging. Lets hope for similar success tomorrow!
