 What will I Do?  

Year 10:

Term 1: Natural Forms

In this project students will focus on making observations of natural forms for example shells, cones, flowers, leaves, fruit and fish. Students will work from direct observation and from their own photographs. They will explore a broad range of materials, techniques and processes. Students will study the work of different artists and designers including Karl Blossfeldt, Georgia O’Keeffe, Ernst Haeckle, Andy Goldsworthy and William Morris. Students will be expected to demonstrate the ability to record their ideas, observations, insights and independent judgements both visually and through informative written annotation, using suitable specialist vocabulary. They will continue to evaluate and their refine work, to produce a personal 2D final outcome.

 Term 2: Portraiture

In this project students will focus on learning how to draw portraits and understanding proportion while exploring expression and character. Students will work from first hand observation and from their own photographs and gathered imagery. They will explore a broader range of materials, techniques and processes whilst building on existing skills. Students will understand how digital media can be used to manipulate imagery exploring new possibilities for making art and design.  Students will study the work of different artists and designers including David Hockney, Frida Kahlo, Chuck Close, Andy Warhol and Vincent Van Gogh.  Students will be expected to demonstrate the ability to record their ideas, observations, insights and independent judgements both visually and through informative written annotation, using suitable specialist vocabulary. They will continue to evaluate and their refine work, to produce a personal 2D final outcome.

 Term 3: Distortion

In this project students will focus on abstraction and understanding how Cubist artists use elements broken down into distinct areas or planes, showing different viewpoints at the same time . Students will work from first hand observation and from their own photographs and gathered imagery. They will explore a broader range of materials, techniques and processes whilst building on existing skills. Students will study the work of different artists and designers including Pablo Picasso, Henrietta Harris and Francis Bacon.  Students will be expected to demonstrate the ability to record their ideas, observations, insights and independent judgements both visually and through informative written annotation, using suitable specialist vocabulary. They will continue to evaluate and their refine work, to produce a personal final outcome using clay. They will further their understanding of how to work in 3D, experimenting with various tools and techniques and developing knowledge of how to use glazes and oxides.
