Year 8 students building DNA from sweets https://t.co/MmuYkZcrNb

Art & Design

Intent:

“The Study of Art is the study of history, culture and creativity in all forms.

Key Stage 3; Visual Art

Students in Year 7 are taught a wide range of techniques such as drawing, incorporating tone, texture and form and a range of materials to explore these techniques. They explore sculpture, painting, and printmaking amongst other mediums with drawing as a fundamental. Students explore and learn to emulate varied cultural significant artists from different periods in art history and styles.

Year 8 students are encouraged to interpret artistic styles that explore wide reaching contexts and contrast one another. Topics extend to portraiture, sculpture, colour theory and mood and basic photographic techniques and urban graffiti. The fundamentals of Year 7 are incorporated in each topic and style.

Students in Year 9 explore their place in the world and how they interact in society delving into social issues and continue to expand their skill base whilst looking at historical and contemporary artists, which will guide them into GCSE Art and Design.

Key Stage 4; Fine Art & Photography

Students explore, develop and create two personal sketchbooks based on two contrasting topics. Students develop an appreciation of the artistic process by researching artists, styles and materials and, from this theoretical and practical process, develop techniques to excel in. A final project piece is completed to an external brief showcasing the interpretive and technical skill of each student. Coursework equates to 60% of the final grade and the exam component equates to 40%. The course is structured to facilitate explorations and outcomes to support the final personal choice exam style.

Students embarking on the GCSE Photography strand develop and explore a range of photographic media, techniques and processes. Developing an awareness of both traditional and new technologies,

they explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of art, craft and design from the past and recent times, including European and non-European examples. This is integral to the investigating and making processes, which follows the same structure as the above.

Specification:

Students studying GCSE Art and Design follow the AQA specification found here; GCSE Art and Design Specification for first teaching in 2016 (aqa.org.uk)
