Year 10 ART:

As per the plan for lessons, you should all be starting your final pieces w/b 16th March. You SHOULD have collected your stretched paper if ordered or paper to work on for this, plus any equipment you are using for that final piece. Plus sketchbook.

You need to sketch out very lightly your composition on the paper. Spend time on this- up to 2 hours- making sure that everything is the right scale and in proportion. It needs to fill the whole paper.

Then, as practised, start to apply your media. Build up layers of tone then detail as practised in your sketchbooks.

If you need to practice more/ something starts to go wrong - go back to your sketchbook and practise further as you go. REMEMBER you should have tried out at least an object or a small section of the final piece to scale so you know how to achieve the effect you need on a larger scale- it makes a difference enlarging the scale of an object!

You have until week beginning 4th May to complete.
