From the Leader of Learning - Creative Arts


Creative Artist of the Week

Artist: Amelie Diver

Year 9 Visual Arts student

Title: “Figure in the Environment”

Media: Acrylic Paint

My painting is Renaissance-themed, which is a topic I have been studying in Year 9 Visual Arts over the past term. Our brief was to complete a Renaissance-style painting, with the topic of, 'Figure in the Environment'. This meant it had to include a figure, a building, and the environment. I went for more of a fairytale Renaissance theme, so mine has very bright colours to create that fantasy look. 

Doing this painting was a fun project and a great way to be creative through expressions of bright colours. I love painting and creating art because it is a way to express myself and relax. Having the opportunity to paint on a big canvas was a new experience as I've never painted anything this big before. It took me a very long time, but I'm very happy with how it turned out in the end.
