Autumn 1



This term we are studying the artist Alberto Giacometti. 

Week 3


This week we continued to discover more about the life of Giacometti. We explored further his human sculptures and his interest in the way humans move. We thought about our range of action poses from the previous sessions. We then each made our own Maquette from tin foil. We aimed to manipulate the arms and legs into an action stance. 

Making Maquettes

Week 1 and 2


We started our topic by considering how human actions and poses can be represented through drawing and sketching. We worked in pairs and thought of different action poses. We then sketched these in our Art books and also used ICT too. We took photographs of each other on the iPads then imported the photograph into Sketchbook. Using the drawing tools we were able to sketch over the top of the image and then remove the photograph to reveal our sketch on a blank background. We really enjoyed this activity and thought of some really imaginative poses.
