Year 11 Art

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr E. Peters

Who is this subject intended for:
This subject would suit those students who are interested in the Visual Arts and who are keen to develop their skills while completing a significant body of work. Students need to have good work habits and be prepared to develop their own creativity while following a structured programme.

What you will learn in this subject:
● Skills:
You will have the opportunity to build work using a range of media, based on a theme but allowing personal input in terms of ideas and technique. A significant body of work is completed that develops an initial idea in a systematic and controlled way. This is a good introduction to Levels 2 and 3 as all external standards, at these levels, are completed in the same way.
● Content:
o Use drawing methods and skills for recording information using wet and dry media.
o Use drawing conventions to develop work in more than one field of practice.
o Produce a body of work informed by established practice which develops ideas, using a range of media.
o Produce a finished work that demonstrates skills appropriate to cultural conventions.
