Year 8 Visual Art
Students expand on the skills and techniques begun in year 7. Again the traditional methods are covered: painting, drawing, sculpture using a wide variety of materials within a range of units and topics. Some of the common assessment topics such as Rendering Faces are taught each year, whilst other tasks can be varied whilst never losing sight of the importance of Art Skills and understanding the language of Art.
This year we are using the iPads to assist in both the practical, written and reflective work. They are proving invaluable in creating art journals and for the immediacy of research and inspiration
