Art & 3D Design Back in the Classroom
The Art and 3D Design Department have had a fabulous start to the term, with Year 7 artists creating expressive drawings using lots of new skills – including drawing with their eyes shut! Year 8 have been enjoying our beautiful grounds practising their landscape drawing, while Year 9 have started their climate change project, learning about typography. Year 10 are creating expressive self-portraits.
In 3D Design, Year 8 have been improving their architecture design skills by screwing up paper and drawing it for inspiration, as well as cutting up a circle and creating a building with it. Year 7 have been learning all about one-point perspective while researching contemporary chair designers including Yinka Liori and Jay Blades. Upper Sixth A-level students have been re-designing old furniture in their recycle, reduce and reuse project.
We are truly amazed by the work so far and we are only three weeks into the academic year!
