Try your luck... Or talent?

I took my first trip to the lavender fields behind school on Sunday, and could not believe my eyes!!! Carshalton certainly has a gem here!! A field of purple with gold strips. I was in awe of what I had in front if me. 

On my at back to the car I stumbled upon this little competition! Now, I know there are definitely a few budding photographers out there who may like to showcase their talents, and maybe win £200 in the process!! Result :) 


Checkout the website www.mayfieldlavender.com 

My efforts so far...
I'm not sure yet, which image I will submit, so maybe you can help me?

Happy snapping

Camera's at the READY...

The holidays are finally here, and what better way to document all the things you get up to...camera's and photographs!!! A perfect way to capture your memories from this summer, who knows you may use them next year in your artwork :) 

Enjoy the sunshine!!

Polyblock Printing 'Step-by-Step

OK, so polyblock printing was great fun!!! One of my favourite parts of being a teacher is teaching kids a skills and watching their face when they get it! Year 9D/Ab1 you succeed making Miss Cove feel great at the end of P6 on Friday. You produced some amazing 2 colour prints. Well done!!

Check out SPHArtandDesign on ...

I'm uploading some amazing work :)

Remember... I am more interesting in your understanding of the process - not the quality of your print! If you have made a mistake find out why and explain. 
Think about: 
How you created your design?
Top Tips
Why the lightest colour first! etc...

Error! Tuesday 9th July 

Keep your steps simple, use the help sheet as guidance. Remember, leave some space for your completed prints and polyblock!

3d Letters

28 letters... 26 pupils... What will it spell? You decide!

I'm sorry I was sunning myself on the Isle of Wight last weekend, but Mrs Philip stepped into the breach to teach the next part of the Typography skills unit.

How are you getting on?
Miss Coves loves an example!

Remember - annotate your work. It is so important to explain what and why you are doing something. I need to know what is going through your head :)

Looking forward to seeing what we spell!!

OK, so I thought it was about time I shared the work of all the pupils at Stanley Park High School. We often display work around the school and down the corridors leading down to the art studio. But I think its about time we shared the work of our fantastic pupils will the WORLD!!!!

So I have set up an Instagram account!
