Martin Jones

Aims

Students should gain an understanding of:

  • The process of experimentation with brushes and a range of other tools.
  • The use of different consistencies of paint to achieve different effects.
  • How to collect visual information using photographs and sketches in preparation for a painting.
  • The concept of composition – covering the whole canvas first and gradually building up the surface by adding more detail.
  • Special vocabulary to describe and respond critically to their own and others' work.
  • The need for reworking and development of an idea to achieve a successful piece of artwork.
