Emma D (S3, OLSP) has been working hard to finish off her CD Booklet Design that she has created along with the rest of her classmates.
Each pupil had to draw, colour, scribble and paint four separate studies, as well as create two separate transparent prints and write a set of lyrics for a song.
The studies, based on the conflict between nature and machines focused on plants, cogs, circuitry and animal patterns.
Emma’s patterns are extremely neat and vivid, her pen work is interesting and dramatic and along with her fun and dynamic robot painting, she has created a wonderful CD booklet.
The process wasn’t just visual images, Emma and her class were asked to produce or customise a song/lyrics to feature in the booklet. Emma’s lyrics below are based around a song by Adele, though read as if they should be in a Radiohead album.
A beautiful booklet and a great object to keep and look back on in years to come, great work Emma.
Abby McG (S4) from the West of Scotland receives her Ed Sheeran Portrait Competition prize along with her framed artwork. She is absolutely over the moon and can’t believe that her work was chosen from over a hundred entries by Ed himself. Congratulations Abby.
Class S1CF5 have put this amazing trolley together in a single period as a collaboration between Art & Design and English. Working with Miss Clarkin, they are looking at ‘Spit Nolan’ by Bill Naughton and are attempting to create a modern day version of the cart in the tale. The trolley has been created by cutting cardboard, rolling paper and covering the whole lot with glue stick and tin foil.
It feels like it’s Munch month… Jodie & Jean (S2, OLSP) have been using Munch’s ‘Scream’, along with an image of Machu Picchu to create an animation for their Disaster and Emergency project. They have created a stylised painting with moving lava and ash cloud to film a stop animation for the challenge.
S2 are working towards a short film based around ‘Disaster & Emergency’ for an Integrated Learning Project. Below are a few of the currently successful paintings they’re working on. Each pair of pupils are combining a place and an artist together to form the basis for their disastrous footage. They will then all come together to form a short news bulletin film.
