KS3 Art on Display

Thursday 23 June 2022

In Art last term, KS3 students created final pieces as part of their Spring Term project. The Art department then selected stand out pieces that are currently on display around the school.

Year 7 students worked on their ‘Artist Alphabet’ project. Students learnt about typography, fonts, and studied graphic artist Karina Ebatova. They then had to design a calligram letter that visually represented its meaning, e.g., P for Paint, A for Artist etc.

As you can see below, selected final pieces are now on display around the school, either outside SLT’s offices or near corresponding spaces, e.g. M for Music outside the Music room, W for Weather by the terrace.

Year 8 students worked on their ‘Edible Portrait’ project. Students learnt about portraiture, watercolour painting, and studied artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo and make-up artist Kimberly Margarita. They then had to create a watercolour portrait around the theme of ‘Food’.

As you can see below, selected final pieces are now on display in the school’s dining hall.

Year 9 students worked on their ‘Contrasting Cities’ project. Students learnt the techniques of Mono printing, Sgraffito and studied artists Eric Drooker and Hilly Van Eerten. They then had to create a final piece around the theme of ‘Contrasting Cities’ using the skills learned.

As you can see below. Selected final pieces are now on display on walls around the 1st floor.
