Art 

"Art is the desire of a person to express themselves, to record the reactions of their personality to the world they live in."  – Amy Lowell

 

 

Students have the opportunity to choose an option subject to study in year 10 and 11.

Art & Design is one of these options.

We are currently running AQA GCSE Art, Craft & Design course over the 2 years of Key Stage 4 for the full course. This consists of:

  • COMPONENT 1 – PORTFOLIO 

  • A SUSTAINED PROJECT

  • This is developed throughout the course in response to a subject or theme showing,through their sketchbooks, the journey from initial thoughts and ideas, through experimentation and research to 1 or more final piece of Art work. This will give students the opportunity to demonstrative their creative abilities through a wide range of techniques and processes.

  • A SELECTION OF FURTHER WORK

  • This can take any form in the form of a 1 or more mini projects and is aimed at enhancing their portfolio.
