Do you love...

  • Being creative, enthusiastic and imaginative?
  • Experimenting and taking risks with your artwork?
  • Visiting galleries and museums?
  • And… are you a hard worker?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then GCSE Art is the ideal subject for you.

 

How is it assessed?

The course is divided up into two units. In unit one you will create a portfolio of art work developed from your research of famous artists, designers, craftspeople and architects. You will use and experiment with a wider range of materials, techniques and processes learning to visually communicate personal ideas and responses to themes. You will need to show that you can analyse your work and the work of others with thoughtful and critical language. Unit 2 is an externally set exam project, which asks you to create a body of work in response to the year’s theme.  The final artefact is produced in exam conditions.

Taking Art GCSE will be the first step that will enable you to enter careers in the fine arts, interior design, graphics, fashion, gaming, architecture and many areas within the creative arts industry.

Acceptance onto the GCSE Art Course will be subject to a successful interview and portfolio submission. You will be given specific dates and times of these following submission of the options form.  Your portfolio will consist of your sketchbook plus any examples of additional art work you have completed in art club, during innovation weeks or in your spare time.
