Howdy... Year 9 Gaudi!

Welcome to the first Year 9 post. 9U5 (pictured) are currently in the thick of their 'Gaudi Mixed Materials A2 Design Project'! This will in turn form part of their tracking and feed into the up and coming 'options' process. If you are currently studying art in Year 9 and thinking of taking Art in Year 10, check out other posts on this blog featuring GCSE work.

Year 10 students are currently working on their 'Matisse Mixed Materials A1 Design Project', which is also concentrates on colour, pattern, rythym, shape and mixed materials.... so if you're enjoying the Gaudi project there's everything to look forwards to! Speak to your current Art Teacher for more information and advice about choosing Art as an Option.

A big thanks to Jake and Dom for taking all the
photos in this post.

Pupils have become lost for days in the
Gaudi mixed media materials box.

Alex looks on in disbelief as Mr Robinson falls asleep while
still standing (T10 is VERY warm)
