Year 8 Food
Towards the end of year 8, students begin to build their independence within Art and have more control of their outcomes. During the Food project, students take their own primary images to work from; this enables students to build photography skills and then enhance their use of Photoshop. Students experiment with watercolour, coloured pencil and acrylic paint. Students then choose which material they prefer to work in, ultimately creating an entirely self-directed piece which allows students to further develop their own personal style and material preference. The objective of this project is to prepare students for a more independent way of working, and build on each students unique skill base, ready to further extend this in year 9.
