This term we will continue to build our skills in Portrait painting and drawing in the Fine Arts course. The Sculpture class gets underway with contemporary sculpture installation art, making sticky tape animal sculptures and documenting the object through photography. They will then work on the alien art, building form and shape through mache, wire and masking tape sculptures. Finishing off with glazing their ceramic works.
Lets have a look back at some of Term Two's artwork from the Fine Arts course. Below are samples of our eye drawing practice. Working with circles (eye sockets) as a starting point and with each step adding the shape of the eye lids, the iris and pupil in proportion to teh eye socket. The students also developed an understanding of how the eye lid covers the iris partially for a more realistic finish. We will be continuing to develop our tonal and painting skills throughout the next term.
