Year 7 & Year 8
In Year’s 7 and 8 pupils get 50 minutes of art a week. We begin with the introduction of the Formal Elements in Art i.e. Line, Tone, Form, Mood, Colour, Texture and Pattern this then provides pupils with the opportunity to acquire and develop a range of Key Skills to encourage their creativity and imagination.
To strengthen pupils learning and build on their art experiences, pupils will then move onto more sustained projects or themes that will expand their knowledge and understanding of the Key Art Elements that will help pupils to develop and improve their practical and critical studies skills.
They will then be able to engage confidentiality with art, craft and design in the modern world and from different times and cultures. They will become more independent in using the visual language to communicate their own ideas, feelings and meanings.
Colour mixing: using a variety of art materials.
We offer several AQA GCSE Art courses at KEY STAGE 4 these include Fine Art, Graphic Communication (VCert Graphic Design - vocational), Photography and a general art and design course that focuses on 3D design and textiles.
Year 10 & 11
In Years 10 and 11 Pupils continue their artistic development in their chosen art subject by investigating a wide range of different media and techniques.
