KS3 Curriculum Guide - Year 8 Art
Terms 1, 2 and 3Portraiture
Students explore the human figure in art through investigations of the work of others, their own knowledge and experimentation with a range of media and techniques. They will produce thumbnail sketches from life, develop imaginative large scale graphite images and produce wire, paper and mod-roc sculptures. Students analyse the work of artists responding to different stimuli to produce practical outcomes.

Terms 4, 5 and 6Human Form
Students are introduced to facial proportions through the rule of halves. Emphasis is initially on identifying correct proportions, positions, shapes and detail. Students develop their skills in observation whilst using new drawing techniques. They explore African masks and the cubist work of Picasso and respond to their research by producing a 3D mask.
