African Art B&W Designs are in!

A selection of some of the great black and white design pages produced in the first few weeks of term by our Year 10 students at Chellaston Academy. Working from a range of source sheets and their own research, students are encouraged to remix and alter the shapes and motifs they discover to create their own interpretations of the material. The work is roughly planned out over a few lessons in pencil before they tuck into the final designs with fineliners. The finished sheets are then used to develop more experimental work in a variety of other materials.

Blimey... bit good aren't they! Well done you lot!
