Long-legged art lesson

Year 9 pupils at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School have been putting their creative skills to good use in their art lessons over the last few weeks. They have made a selection of colourful figures using newspaper and masking tape. These now adorn the school reception area and attract many favourable comments from visitors.

Head of Art, Rachael Killen explains “Year 9 pupils have been looking at proportion and the human form. Having studied the elongated figures of the artist Alberto Giacometti, pupils then used newspaper and masking tape to create the figures inspired by Giacometti’s work. They then added detail with tissue paper and paint.”

She continues “Working on 3D art projects of this nature enables pupils to become more self aware by examining their own identity. This self awareness will give them more confidence to take risks both in Art and in other subjects.”
