Junior All about art

Posted: 10th November 2023

The junior school art room has been a hive of activity, and this is just a taster of the wonderful array of work completed throughout the first half term.

Firstly, a huge well done to our art monitors, who have done an amazing job of helping to run The Big Draw. The theme this year is ‘Drawing with Senses’. They helped to launch the project in assembly to the whole school and have since then volunteered to assist with each form during their allocated time slot, giving advice and helping with the resources. We cannot wait to see the final installation in the senior school.

Upper Two children have been studying ‘Surprised’ by Henri Rousseau. Through a mixture of painting and digital art, they have created their own response to the painting in the form of an agamograph (a series of images that change at different angles).

Lower Two pupils have excelled in their drawing topic, using charcoal to create beautifully textured owls.

Form One and Upper One pupils have had a colourful start, further exploring colour mixing and tints and shades, creating gradient colour mixed fish and using complementary colours to make their dragon eyes pop!

After school art clubs have been super busy. Upper Two has used mixed media to create stunning orca pictures, and Lower Two have gone big! The wonderful mixed media crazy cats and dogs have been fun to make and make a mesmerising display.

Well done for all the hard work and creativity and we look forward to even more this half term!
