Textile Painting

Year 8 students at NGG International School in Denmark are creating some stunning hand-painted textiles.
Inspiration came from as many diverse sources as they could muster. Their results bear testimony to how much these great young designers have been absorbed in, and enjoying the process.

SECONDARY COLOUR

Creative overload from Year 10 IGCSE Art and Design students at NGG International School in Denmark:

Isabella's riot of colour

I’d thought that I’d ordered watercolour paint from a Finnish supplier, by happy accident it turned out to be ink in the 3 primary colours

Simming's prolific collection

The rain lashed down outside, and the sun began to descend at 16:00 here in dark Denmark. Inside our warm art room colours blazed and a brand new palette of possibilities

Watercolour Effects

Year 9i at NGG International School have been learning about colour,  and a little of the science behind it. These past two weeks they’ve been putting it into practice,  and have also launched themselves enthusiastically into handling watercolour painting. With just the three primary colours, (red, blue and yellow) they’ve tackled watercolour techniques, observational drawing and have created these rich autumnal colours.

BODY OF WORK

image

Year 8 at NGG International School are learning how to make accurate figure drawings. We’ve chosen to mix classical drawing skills, understanding anatomy and photography with a more lively ‘crime scene’ approach. This coming week will see us returning to the classical method of ‘sighting’ the model with an outstretched arm, a trained eye and a (sharp) pencil as the gauge.

The following stage of this project will be livened up by the students using photography to capture sporting images. These photos will be used to create a collection of artworks with sport and movement as the pivotal theme.

Kodak Moments

Here’s some of the preliminary photos by grade 6 from NGG International School.  All shot in the edgy and composed style of Jeff Wall, whose photographic exhibition we experienced at Louisiana art gallery in the previous post. In this coming week we’ll assemble all the work and hold a critique with our budding 26 x twelve year old photographers

It was such a beautiful day last week, when these photos were taken.  The assignment brief is entitled – ‘Our School.’ The aim – to capture the essence of NGG International. From these shots, it looks like the emphasis is on all things sporty. Happily, the weather looks miserable this week,  they’ll become inspired to photograph inside the building I’m sure 🙂

In The Picture

Sixth grade art and design students at NGG International school in Denmark, made an inspirational visit to our local gallery –  Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
As the school year draws to a close, our final project is a photographic one. Culminating in an exhibition of student work at the beginning of the new term, where they strive to capture the essence of our little school – in black and white.

We’d come seeking inspiration from an exhibition of huge images by the reknown Canadian photographer,  Jeff Wall.

Firstly, lunch on the beach

...and skimming stones across the Baltic Sea

Students were given a guided tour of Jeff Wall's photography

Students were invited to interact with the massive illuminated images

Next week in art class, sixth grade students will compose and record their own images of our school. Watch this space to see their creative responses.

Creative Christmas

Grade 7 at NGG International School have made some glorious lanterns,  candle sticks and Christmas tree ornaments.  They’ve been dedicated about bringing empty jam jars and bottles to class, and cleaned-up their cupboards at home as they scoffed their way through the remains of Nutella,  peanut butter,  jam, pickled red cabbage and the occasional soused herring – but not all at the same sitting.
I think that you’ll agree that all this recycling,  and a bit of tissue paper and wire have made some lovely objects.
