7Y2 had a great lesson today using watercolour paints. We first thought about primary and secondary colours by MIXING. Then worked on achieving a solid colour with no white gaps and neat edges through CONTROLLING before independently EXPLORING alternative techniques. Some fantastic results- massive well done!
Here is some info on Sheet 2 to help with your deadline. Think carefully about the quality of your written language. You need to explain your ideas not just describe them.
You need to cover the following areas: OPINION/ MEANING/ VISUAL/ COLOURS/ TECHNIQUE/ INFO/ MATERIALS
'I really like this artist's work because it is interesting and eye catching. I like the use of materials and it works really well' - LOW LEVEL
'I feel that the artist's work is successful as they use a range of materials in an interesting way. I particularly find the use of paint interesting as the colours are able to blend much more smoothly. If this were my work I would like to try this technique using blended pencil so I could achieve crisper edges' - HIGH LEVEL
today was 11a's last ever art lesson so we celebrated in usual style- with cake. a few tears and a group hug later it was time for lunch/ third lunch French (liv!) I wish you all the best in your exams and know you will smash them- please don't be strangers- keep in touch to let me know how things are going!
Here is the video from lesson which will help you with Task 1 of your homework!
Don't forget to use super creative presentation techniques- you are aiming for a higher level than your previous homeworks!
