In this unit students will learn about Abstract art and create an abstract and imaginative piece of mixed media art (including painting). This includes tonal drawing and painting techniques, painting, mixing and brush techniques as well as being creative and original and analysing and evaluating art.
By the end of this unit it is expected that all students will understand how to produce a piece of abstract art. This will involve manipulating form and scale to create an original, refined sketchbook design for a partly painted mixed-media final piece and then producing it.
The sketchbook and final piece are awarded attainment levels.
Extended Homework Assignments
