Induction day for our first-year Level 3 Art & Design students
And the winner is.... the letter designs, which showed the most creativity, effort and imagination were awarded prices.
"Pull a stupid face" - Our new group of first year art & design students; welcome to the BMet experience!
One of the winning designs.
Task: Use the letters to form a sentence, which describes how we (the students) feel.
Different observational drawing challenges were set during the afternoon session, here the students are recording negative space.
Charcoal-stick drawings - Loose control!
The focus here was to record the texture and patterns of the letter forms.
