Year 11 are putting the final touches to their GCSE artwork submissions. An art exam will also be taken in May to go with the coursework.
Each student is given a choice for the main theme for their coursework. Lansdowne students are working on Music and Art, Abstract and Aboriginal Art.
It has been interesting to see how the students have taken these themes and adapted them. The Music and Art theme has led to artwork that shows how the pupils feel when they hear a piece of music.
The Abstract topic has created some unique thoughts. One painting has merged together the body parts of humans and animals.
One student has used the Aboriginal topic to create their own sign system. The Aboriginal method for communicating through art has been taken one step further to create a piece of dialogue.
