3rd year art (2014 – 15)

This year group was 2nd year last academic year and so firstly here is work completed last session during 2013 – 14:

Last academic year, 2G have been following a history of western art, looking at key stages in its development, together with practical sessions based on these stages . We have made cave paintings using ochres as paint,

Both classes have also been making major contributions to our UNSUNG STORIES project- 2G have been creating a series of 12 murals for the walls of the K2 building, based on the history of migration to Scotland.

They have been working with our favourite mural artist Joanna Boyce, of Creative Artworks, and have been engrossed in the research of the images for each panel.

2M have been making a film to tell the story of one of the class, Ethan, who has travelled the world before settling here in Edinburgh.

Shaun, Brandon, Ethan and Gabriel, now in 3M, have been creating graphic novels inspired by the work of Reinhard Behrens, a local artist whose work is about an imaginary land, Naboland, and his journeys there in a tine yellow submarine. Here are our versions:

These might take a while to load but they are worth it in the end!
