Art Year 8
•Project 1: Still-life/ Objects and viewpoints
•Pupils explore familiar objects from different viewpoints as the starting point for their work. Pupils learn how to draw objects accurately and how to compose images. They explore positive and negative space around the chosen objects. They consider composition and the effects of complimentary colours using oil pastel as a medium. Experiment with painting techniques and Collage. They analyse and comment on the Cubist art movement and the ideas of representing shape, form and space. They apply this knowledge to their own work to produce a mixed media collage. Look at the work of Leger and Patrick Caulfield.
