Complete one or more of these activities and hand it into your Art teacher for extra credits!

1) Make a detailed, pencil drawing of the inside of your wardrobe. Try to use the rules of perspective to make it look 3D;

2) Research an artist (e.g. Van Gogh or Dali) , a group of artists (e.g. The Surrealists or the Impressionists) or an artistic movement/style (e.g. Pop Art) and produce an information booklet. Your booklet should be presented to a high standard and can be hand-written or typed;

3) Research an artist’s work and complete a coloured drawing of one of their pieces;

4) Choose a very small natural object (e.g. a shell) and make an enlarged observational drawing on the biggest piece of paper you can find!

5) Choose a very small man-made object (e.g. a screw) and make an enlarged observational drawing on the biggest piece of paper you can find!

6) Create a large sculpture (outside!) of an animal, using materials you have collected, e.g. branches, fishing net, cardboard boxes. Take a photograph and bring it into school;

7) Create your own sketchbook showing the things you enjoy doing in Art. You should include drawings of your own, pictures you have collected and notes about your work and that of other artists.

Have fun!
