On the 15th May the Visual and Performing Arts department organised a Super Learning Day. The aim of the day was to create a TV commercial for an imaginary company.
The students have been learning about video editing, graphic design and branding in their Art lessons. In “learn to learn” students have discussed the ethics of advertising and the 4 P’s of marketing. Drama also contributed towards designing the plot and action for the Super learning day task.

Congratulations Y11 Artists you have finished your GCSE Art exam!!!!
The theme this year was ‘past present and/or future’. The students have had 20 hours of lesson time to plan and prepare their ideas, inspired by research into a range of contextual sources.
The final pieces, shown here, were created in 10 hours of studio time this week.
Year 8 were challenged to draw a selection of fruits such as apples, oranges and melons. They were not allowed to add back to create three-dimensional form and had to carefully mix complementary colours to create the darker tones.
Year 7 have completed their self portrait project. In the final painting students worked hard to apply the correct proportions to help them render a likeness. Here are just a few, can you recognise them?
In the build up to eco week Year 8 students have been experimenting with weaving recycled materials such as old magazines and scraps of old clothing. The work was then digitised and repeated to create these colourful textile patterns.
The Year 10 student have just completed their first unit of coursework for their GCSE Art course. The students complete approximately 10 weeks of research, practice and development to refine their final pieces. The preparation work in the sketchbook is worth 75% of the grade and the final piece 25%.
The Y11 GCSE Artists have just completed their mock exam on the theme Journeys. Here are their final pieces which are the end product of 10 weeks of research and development.
Y13 students are working on independent art projects exploring a range of themes such as identity, memory, technology and space. Here are some examples of the studio work they have produced so far this term.
In this project students have been developing their ability to create depth in a landscape painting. Students created areas of light and dark in the trees to demonstrate three dimensionality.

In this task the students used photoshop to create a self portrait. The objective was to understand that artists don’t need to add lots of details to record a likeness in a portrait, however the proportions and the face shape has to be accurate.
