At Emmanuel in Year 7 Art, you will be taken on a journey to discover how wonderful and expressive Art can be.  From the very beginning you will be taught one of the most fundamental skills to become a good drawer, which is tone.  Tone in art refers to the light and dark in art that makes objects realistic and you will be taught how to shade and build the layers, to create smooth surfaces.  We enjoy using graphite, colour pencils and paint and we teach colour theory to gain an understanding of the colour wheel and how colour is used.  Artists such as David Wiesner, Henri Matisse, Andre Durain, Michael Craig Martin and Bridget Riley, are some of the artists we explore in the Year 7 Art
