Year 12 have started work on their Arts Awards. These are recognised qualifications that help students to grow their art and leadership skills.
One of our tasks is to work on an insect collage. We started by experimenting with some different resources. The students used both fine ink and then marker outlines filled in with watercolours.
Art teacher Miss M then asked the students to add some humour to their work. We looked at other examples such as human heads attached to insect bodies. The pupils worked in pairs to create a collage.
Cutting, drawing and sticking skills were needed. The class members were asked to explain their ideas and choice of pictures.
