Imaginative 3D Creations Flourish During the GCSE and IB Art Exam
Visual Arts students in Years 10 and 12 sat their school art exam on Friday. During the five hour session a variety of creative studio pieces were brought to fruition. Year 10 focussed on developing work in three dimensions, using clay, plaster and wire. Their starting point had been creatures that have feathers or fins. Serpents and dragons were amongst some of the fine mythical beasts being made.
Year 12 used the time to complete and refine studio pieces that are likely to feature in their IB Visual Arts exhibition in March next year. It is a requirement of the IB Visual Arts course that students experience and develop techniques and processes in a wide range of media. During the exam, there were students working with clay, fake fur, feathers, wire and papier-mache, taking the IB media requirement to an extreme. Here are some of our young artists hard at work.
