This term in CAPA we have been exploring a variety of art-making techniques as well as attempting to refine student reading, writing and responding skills. Year 7 has been focusing on "Making a Mark", learning about classic artists like Kahlo and Van Gogh, and exploring mark-making techniques such as digital pixel art, oil pastel, ink and watercolour. Year 8 has been "Developing Expression" and learning how to use the Conceptual Framework/the Frames to analyse and respond to artworks with complex meanings. Year 10 has been working along similar lines, researching and analysing the interactions between Artist - Artwork - Audience and World, as well as furthering their exploration of art-making with watercolour and ink. The students have created some fantastic work and I would encourage you to take a look at their VAPDs!
