“In the Dark of Night”

In the 6th form our LG3/4 Art Option group have been working extremely hard in their “In the Dark of Night” project so far this term. They have been developing their understanding in contrasting light and dark through using painting techniques such as washing as well as learning about how to use shadows and silhouettes. There have been some great conversations that have come out of this project including discussions about nocturnal animals and getting depth into their pictures. They are extending their knowledge of the artistic world by looking at famous art works in the same theme such as ‘Starry Night’ by Van Gogh.

To further enhance this project the group are soon to meet with Creative producers and artists in residence from 42nd Street in Manchester. They have been offered the opportunity to access 3 weeks of supported art sessions in the studio at 42nd Street which will then culminate in an exhibition of their work. Bringing together learned techniques as well as developing new skills during their sessions at the 42nd Street studio is really exciting and they all look forward to being part of such an exciting project.
