All students from Year 1 – 11 spent their Art lessons designing and making their unique cards. Our teacher Ms. Huskisson prepared inspiring images and examples were prepared for the different age groups. Each group had a medium in which to work, designated to them, together with 1 or 2 of the Art Elements. This was aimed at embedding their learning from previous units. The Year 8 classes for example focused on the Art Elements of shape or line using black and red card as this was a development of their woodblock unit earlier in the school year when their designs were either focused on shape or line. The Year 9 students revisited watercolour painting, refining their recently acquired skills.
Ms. Huskisson spent a lot of time with the students during the whole process, similarly to last year when we had the cards-design House competition. Ms. Huskisson has been at Léman since 2017. She has a wealth of over 23 years' international teaching experience. As a passionate art teacher, she not only supports her students in their art classes, but also successfully supported students through to Art colleges such as the New York Fashion Institute.
