In Year 7, pupils begin their Art education following the whole school project, Wild about Lawnswood. Pupils explore different wild animals whilst looking at modern animal painters. In groups, pupils design and make a large scale animal sign to be displayed at an animal enclosure at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. The next topic in Art is Heroes and Villains where pupils develop their drawing skills around the theme of portraiture. Finally, pupils study Fantastic birds where they experience a range of mixed media. In all units, pupils continue to develop their drawing skills, as well as studying the work of artists and designers.
Finally, for the summer project, pupils learn about Ancient Egypt, specifically the Art, architecture and culture. Pupils produce Egyptian inspired paintings and drawings and complete the year with a sculpture.
