In Visual Arts for Term Two, students examined the artworks of Olivia Lomenech Gill, who is well known for bringing J.K Rowling’s, ‘Fantastic Beasts’ to life.

Firstly, the Year 7s conducted an analysis of her artwork and then progressed to the inquiry stage of brainstorming, using a digital platform called Pixlr X. Looking at Olivia Lomenech Gill’s illustrated book for inspiration, students utilised mixed media techniques to develop their favourite beasts, which consisted of three to four different animals/creatures combined. Students then enjoyed the clay process by transforming their 2 dimensional artwork into an impressive 3 dimensional ceramic sculpture.
