KS5 Art & Design

Art & Design

Course Title: GCE Art Craft and Design AQA

Grading: A*-E

Course Overview:

Within Art and Design we work on extended projects which will usually last the term, and may have extension activities. These are some of the projects which may be worked on throughout the course;

An extended project on the theme of figure. Students will explore a wide variety of Art based on the figure, in both two and 3three dimensions. They will also develop skills in figure drawing, with after school figure drawing sessions as enrichment. Following their research and experimentation students will then create their own response to the figure.

Starting with the theme of collections, students will study the work of Damian Hirst, looking specifically at the wreck of The Unbelievable. Using this as a starting point students will explore the concept of collections through their own investigations, and forming their own collection, through which they will explore a range of 2D and 3D media and processes, which will culminate in their own personal response.

External Assessment:

The coursework portfolio and externally set assignment are internally marked in May of Year 13, and externally moderated in June.

Internal Assessment

Assessment of work is ongoing throughout the term. Students will have an assessment booklet in the front of their sketchbooks where we comment on their response to the 4 assessment objectives, and indicate areas for development. We use the assessment booklets rather than writing in the student’s actual sketchbooks, as this gives them the opportunity to add into and develop work whilst maintaining the quality of presentation of the planning work. An overall Grade is given at the end of the project.
