If students choose to study Art in Year 9 they will follow an exciting curriculum of three very different projects, inspired by a range of contemporary and modern artists. They are taught for 2 hours per week, allowing them to extend their 3D skills working with Modrock and plaster.
Niki De Saint Phalle Sculpture Project
Students work together in small groups learning about the proportions of the human body. They study the work of sculptor Niki De Saint Phalle as an inspiration for their own Modrock sculpture. Pupils have to develop their teamwork skills in order to ensure a successful outcome.
Sea Portraits/Sea Masks
Using the inspiration of Pirates of the Caribbean, students draw directly from a range of sea creatures to gather inspiration for their own ‘sea portrait’. They will use watercolour and pencil crayon to create a textural and exciting outcome. This project will allow them to develop an understanding of the proportions of the human face as well as develop skills drawing from direct observation. In response to their own outcomes, students then produce a 3D mask to complete their project.
John Burgerman graphic design project
Students explore the work of popular graphic designer John Burgerman, inspiring them to create their own typography designs as well as creating a final design for a mobile phone cover.
