C. Coultart 2010-2019
these are the projects you will tackle this year...
Project 1 - Urban Environment
look at the buildings in the school focusing on the details such as brickwork, drain covers and other surfaces. At home study the architectural structure of your house or street. Look at the transport system. Study road signs or street signs. Explore perspective and take some photographs. From your studies, develop your favourite ideas to produce a main piece that explores the Built Environment.
Project 2; Music -
in this Red-p project we have a look at the way in which artists use Music as a theme to make their compositions.
Project 3 - Fragmentation
In this TAUGHT Project we will be studying one of the most influential movements in Modern Art, Cubism. We study the techniques of Braque and Picasso and then make a fragmented image. We then paint the image using the types of colours employed by the Cubists.
Project 4 - Book Cover Design
In this Red-P project we will look at how GRAPHIC DESIGNERS lay out letter forms and use simple, limited colour schemes. We will study letter types and colour schemes and investigate graphic forms. Then, following the tips we pick up from the work of the designers Alison Glancey we will compose and make our own Book Cover.
Project 5 - Insects (A 3-D Project)
we will make some drawings of birds and insects and then try our hand at modelling with art straws and wire.
