As I stated in my previous post I am now putting on a few of my Yr. 11 students exam paintings up here. I am very proud of the whole class and the outcomes of their exams. This was a 10 hour, two day exam that culminated in a final piece from the previous 8 weeks of study on the theme of Ordinary and Extraordinary. It was interesting to note how some of the students latched onto ideas they already knew very well, IE, religion or global politics to develop their themes. For me it is nice to see students putting a lot of thought and meaning into their work rather than just trying to paint a pretty picture. I beleive art should have and carry a message.
Here are some of the images:
