Recommended Prior Learning

Year 10 Art is preferred

The theme for the years work is based on identity and student interests. This is explored visually, using a wide range of wet and dry media and different art making techniques, and processes. This course is intended to give students a model for the development and production of visual images and ideas, which they can build on in the future. Much of the year is spent improving practical techniques, developing ideas and creating final artworks for the external folio. (12 credits.) There is a research component that will provide 4 Level 1 literacy credits if achieved. 
Students will work in consultation with their teacher to devise an individualised, personal learning and assessment programme which will compromise of up to a maximum total of 20 credits
