Term 2 - Self Image
For this project Year 7 will be asked to look at themselves. They will work from direct observation and will consider basic facial proportions, facial features and colour to produce a range of responses reflecting the work of the artist Pablo Picasso. They will learn how to combine visual and written information in order to present an informative research page with some analysis. This work will be developed into print.
Term 3 - Cultural Project
Looking at the work of other artists and cultures helps to promote a shared understanding of the role of art in all our lives. This year we will be looking at Greek culture with specific reference to clay forms, sculptures and dramatic masks. This work will be translated into 3D form through the use of found objects, paper, card or clay.
