Year 10 and Y11 Art

AQA GCSE Art, Craft and Design

The early projects in year 10 tend to be directed, however as the GCSE Art course progress’s students are increasingly encouraged to become more independent. There is an emphasis on drawing, using a wide range of media, and experimentation.  Students are encouraged to improve their skills by looking at the work of other artists and designers. All students will work in a sketchbook which will be used to collect and present information, develop ideas and experiment with materials.

The course is assessed by 605 coursework and 40% final exam
