The Sixth Form students at Turney School have been working on a thoughtful piece of artwork during our regular sessions in the art studio. The pupils have been looking at how landscapes have been represented by various famous artists.
The first artist that Year 12 have looked at is Alfred Wallace. We have been learning how he is an artist based on the coast in Cornwall. His work reflects many of the sea images that are close to where he lives.
The Turney Sixth Form students have been using this work to inspire their own piece of art. We have been looking at the importance of tints and shades in our work. The pupils should now be familiar with how we can add white to create a tint, or add some black to create a layer of shading.
The students will later go on to look at the work of the artists LS Lowry and Turner.
