Art

Art is a way of making and communicating through imaginary. Art stimulates creative action and response by engaging and connecting thinking, imagination, senses and feelings. It provides the opportunity to undertake art production activities in order to develop artworks in two and three-dimensional media.

In KS3, we will study art history, art criticism, aesthetics, and focus more on art production. We will continuously develop your appreciation, exploration, and curiosity about the arts while exploring various drawing materials, techniques and subjects. 

Students will enhance their observation and accuracy skills as they progress through a variety of assignments such as still life drawing, landscape, figure studies, portraiture, and painting. A wide range of drawing and painting media may be used such as graphite, charcoal, ink, pastel, oil pastel, colour pencils, acrylic and water colour.  

Students will then improve their compositional understanding by applying the elements and principles of design to their sketches/ drawings. A variety of famous artist will be studied to discover how they are relevant in art history and to individual work. Through art production activities, students will gain significant understanding of the world around them and other cultures.   

At BSN, we encourage exploration and experimentation on a wide range of media and techniques through practical work in the studio environment. Our focus is to develop the students’ abilities in creative thinking and conceptualization.
