Mark Making in Art

07 March 2018


This term, boys in the 3rd Form have been learning about the different forms of mark making that can be achieved using chalk in the art lessons.

The boys were shown a variety of photos of owls and were asked to copy an image.  They each experimented on black paper with coloured chalks before finding their own way to interpret the patterns and textures they saw in the photographs.

Their next step was to create larger owl compositions and to experiment with a variety of media such as ink, paint, wax crayon, chalks and oil pastels.

The finished artwork is currently being displayed in the Junior Corridor and the Courtyard.  Please come and take a look and see how the boys have created such wonderful creative pieces of work.
