Green fingers!

Although it has been some time since we posted any pupil work, the art room has been a busy place with pupils  producing all kinds of things! In addition to  portfolio preparation, Form IV Photography and all the usual weekly lessons there have been junior and senior art trips to 'Sculpture in Context' at the Botanic Gardens, as well as the making of  props for the Form I and II plays which will be performed in the coming weeks. Posted today is work by Form II.
 After carrying out a colour mixing exercise, Form II used view finders to organise compositions with green fruit and vegetables.  We photographed the compositions and used them to refer to for the paintings. The objective of the lesson was to focus pupils attention on colour, shape, texture and composition.
