What We Study
The Art GCSE allows students to develop an idea, research and gain inspiration from other sources, experiment and develop practical skills and techniques, before realising outcomes. Once these skills and techniques have been developed students are guided to focus on two areas to further explore their ideas for their assessed units. We offer drawing, painting, printing, air drying sculpture and some digital art work.
The unit is made up of four objectives:
- Developing an idea
- Exploring processes and techniques
- Recording information
- Producing a personal response/final piece
The course assessment is based on two units of project work and assessed on pupils meeting the following objects in both.
The final piece of work for both units is produced under examination conditions. The test question for Unit 2 is given out at the start of the spring term allowing students the maximum time to prepare for the examination.
Both units 1 and 2 are marked by the student’s teacher in school. The work is then exhibited and moderated by the exam board.
