Exams begin for all Forms this week and Junior Certificate pupils will sit their Mock Life-Drawing Exam during this time. Life Drawing is quite a challenge but like most things continuous practice will really improve your drawing skills. Marks are allocated for the pupils' interpretation of the art elements and principles required to develop a composition; these include shape, scale, proportion and form. Pupils have the choice to draw the Entire Figure or a Head and Shoulders portrait. The video link below gives one artist's response to drawing a head and shoulders portrait.
