Art & Design
Year 7 Scheme of Work: Me & My Community
During this project, students will investigate the work of Hundertwasser They will develop observational skills and use their imagination to design their own buildings and create work that is inspired by Hundertwasser’s artistic and ecological ideology. They will develop their understanding of colour, digital skills manipulating images of both themselves and buildings from their community. They will finally produce an A2 oil pastel study learning how to build up and blend colour inspired by Hundertwasser’s love for lines.
Year 7 Scheme of Work: Marine Life
Students will begin by looking at the work of Andrea Marrs-Poehl, Felix Murillo and Lisa Benoudiz. They will research various marine life of their choice and learn how to use Paint.net, experimenting with a variety of digital effects enabling them to produce an A2 painting incorporating chosen artists’ characteristics.
Year 7 Scheme of Work: Title: Natural Forms/Repeat Pattern
The aim of this project is to explore paint, pastels and pencil producing a series of studies on natural forms. Students will have the opportunity to take photographs of their chosen natural form and manipulate their images using a variety of effects on Paint.net. Both their digital outcomes and drawing of their natural forms will be used to further develop a repetitive pattern and produce an A3 painting – making reference to chosen artists/textile designers.
Year 8 Scheme of Work: My Favourite Activity
Students will begin by studying the Cubist artist Fernand Leger – researching and producing drawings in their sketchbooks. They will learn how to draw 3d shapes and understand different types of tone. They will learn how to design a composition for an A2 painting using 3d shapes - manipulating their image to convey themselves in their favourite activity using Leger’s painting ‘Big Julie’ as inspiration and the characteristics of Cubism.
Year 8 Scheme of Work: Still Life
Students will begin by setting up a Still Life grouping and producing observational tonal studies. They will look at the work of Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein, learning about his background, style and influences. Pupils will manipulate their Still Life study in order to produce an A3 painting that conveys Pop Art characteristics.
Year 8 Scheme of work: Animals
