KS4 Art is offered to students from year 10 & 11 as an option subject.
In Art, students are offered an exciting but challenging experience to develop their imagination and creativity in an enjoyable and relaxed environment. They are encouraged to work with a range of materials and processes including print-making and three-dimensional studies along with drawing and painting. Students are also expected to research the work of others. Although students develop their coursework through structured experiences of skills, observational work and research, we also aim to develop practical skills for communicating and expressing ideas and feelings through art, craft and design.
The course is run by AQA exam board
A portfolio of work (60%) will be completed in Year 10 and the first term of Year 11
There will be one externally set task (40%) completed in the Spring term of Year 11
