X25 X-Block Observation and colour work

Today X25 have been working on the following Learning Targets:

  • I can sketch out accurately from observation
  • I can overlay coloured pencil to create form
  • I can mix/ blend coloured pencil
  • I can leave highlights and record shadow

They are working hard at developing their Art skills: these are transferable when creating a product for an expedition.

Here you can see X3 busy using colour to create form on their observational apple study.

Beautiful work by Class of 23

Year 7 have been working closely with Age UK in their current expedition Spread A Little Happiness. They have done service learning by playing games with users of Age UK in Sprotbrough and Armthorpe and found out what they like. Students then made “Kindness boxes” for their person with the things they like in.
