Year Eight Royal Academy workshop
Each year a group of 30 Year Eight students are selected to participate in a figure drawing workshop with the Royal Academy. This workshop links with the Y8 programme of study as all students study figure proportion and various artists that relate to this theme. During this day the students study the figure using a life model and the work is directed by a member of the Royal Academy who has a vast array of experience with working in schools. The students thoroughly enjoy the experience and it certainly enhances their learning and enthusiasm for the subject. The work produced is also show to the rest of Year Eight and used as a stimulus for lesson work.
