New links for all of you!


Michael Najjar is a German artist who produces a lot of digital and photographical work often around a scientific theme.

Sarah I would like you to look at his series called "Outer Space"
Sarah I have also found an Artist called Valerie Kirk who produces tapestries. She has made a tapestry based upon a scientific photograph by a scientist called Brian Schmidt which is very interesting, especially in the way that she is combining high science with craft materials. 
Sarah I would also like you to look at spray paint artists that produce outer space scenes using everyday objects to create different effects, It might be worth us having a play with these materials and trying to produce our own.

Dante, Henry, Tim and Brandon: there is a really interesting set of images by Michael Najjar titled 'Netropolis' using multiple exposures which I think might be really interesting for you guys to have a look at.

Class 2 MindMap


Above is the mind map that you created last lesson, This needs to be copied into your books.

Try copying it in, however if you are struggling with your writing then printing this out and sticking it in will be fine.

Whichever way you put it into your book, you need to make it your own. If you are printing it then: you need to cut around the words and use different materials to make it more interesting, think about using collage or painting under/over it.

If you are copying it then: make sure you are creative, use different colours and materials to show your experimentation with different processes.
