Wonderful Work in Art

This term in Art, Year 7 have been working on their ‘Artist Alphabet’ project, exploring the formal elements of art. All pupils are developing their knowledge of fonts, words and artistic careers to create their very own artist calligram.

Year 8 have been working on their ‘Abstract Cityscapes’ project, researching and responding to the work of abstract artist and architect, Hundertwasser, to design their own abstract cityscape painting.

Year 9 have been working on their ‘Ink Creatures’ project, studying the 1920s art movement ‘Surrealism’ and drawing inspiration from animals, mythology and science to create their own ink creatures. As you can see, pupils developed their knowledge of composition through combining creatures together, and developed their mastery in the media of ink to achieve tone and texture in their final pieces. We look forward to seeing more from our talented artists and designers here at AJK!
