Year 7 Art Workshop with Illustrator Emma Dibben

On the 9th of May Year 7 were lucky enough to have illustrator, Emma Dibben carry out workshops for the day. Emma is well known for her illustrations of food and food packaging, particularly for Waitrose. First Emma taught the children how to draw out the fruit and vegetables using pencil, then applying watercolour, using washes of paint and splatters before adding finer details. It was a great day, with an impressive level of work created by the year group and I hope some of them may have been inspired by Emma to become illustrators one day.

Year 6 Australian Aboriginal Dot Paintings

This term in Art Year 6 have been exploring the dot paintings made by the Australian Aboriginal people. They firstly chose six symbols before planning out their painting and then painting them in acrylic using paintbrushes and cotton buds. The students took special care to think about the colours they were using and the placement of the symbols.
