Form 6 Large Landscapes Project

Form 6 Large Landscape Art Project

Mar 2020
The art department at Senior House is a lively place where the children experience a wide range of media and materials through a stimulating curriculum. Housed in a spacious room with ample natural light, the children gain experience in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and ceramics through the study of both historic and contemporary art practice. Each child keeps a sketchbook which is used to record observations and to research and plan project work. Weekly lessons last for an hour and different topics and processes are studied each term. Some projects use digital media both in the creation and recording process. Continuous feedback is important for the development of both skills and the specific artwork. Trips and cross-curricular work also form part of some art projects, for example World War I commemorative pieces made following a visit to the Imperial War Museum Duxford and the study of Michael Morpurgo’s book, Private Peaceful. For their current project, Form 6 children have chosen as their inspiration a landscape that is important to them and/or which holds memories for them past and have worked on both large scale (A0 paper) and then smaller collages using recycled materials.
