Welcome to the Art Department at APS!
The best A-Level students will be those who regularly practise their drawing from life and push hard to develop this skill……..
So, with this in mind please produce a pencil drawing of 3 houses or interesting buildings. You should include tonal shading and mark-making in your drawing.
Our theme for term 1 will be landscape. What type of landscape artist do you want to be? Research this theme on the internet and print off 8 examples of work you like. This could be rural, city or urban landscape, you choose! Then, make a copy of one of these images…. Work in a medium suited to the piece you are copying…. Paper, canvas, wood, it's up to you, as is the scale. This should be an extended piece of work- so take time on it and remember- blend those colours!
To discover more about the subject at a higher level:
- Museums and Galleries are great to visit to see the work of others.
- Try and get to one of the University Degree Shows, the work is often inspirational!
- Google AS and A2 Art- see what those who have gone before you have done.
