Grade 9 & 10 Visual Arts Advanced students

The Grade 9/10 Visual Arts Advanced students had the challenge of drawing a still life using a stick they picked up from the ground in the school courtyard. Dipping their stick in ink they created beautiful, loose, flowing images that helped them to relax their drawing style, to experiment with line and shape, and have some fun playing with the media.

Grade 11/12 Visual Arts Advanced & IB students





 
 The Grade 11/12 Visual Arts Advanced and IB students were busy drawing the deep shadows of the still life set up in the Art room. Using powdered charcoal and damp paint brushes, students studied the light and shadows of the objects and the skeleton. At the same time they were loosening up to make large fluid and bold brush strokes.
