Art & Design at Guilsborough School
Art and Design is not purely about drawing and painting. You will also have the opportunity to use a wide variety of materials, tools and equipment and to learn many creative processes across a range of crafts. These craft areas might include graphic design, textiles/printing, or 3-D. The work of artists and designers will play an important part in your studies. You will use the work of artists to develop your own skills and you will make connections with this work and your own. At the end of your course you will submit three units of coursework for formal assessment and you will complete one 10 hour examination over two days. You will complete an introductory unit, plus at least 3 more units. You will be assessed using the following objectives: Objective 1 Visual recording (from observation, primary and secondary sources etc) Objective 2 Understanding contexts in art, craft and design (looking at the work of artists, designers and craftspeople) Objective 3 Practical development (looking at a range of materials and techniques whilst developing your ideas) Objective 4 Realising intentions (The final outcome) Art coursework requires great commitment and many hours of individual work to support lessons. Students have to meet the examination requirements and cannot just draw or paint in their own preferred styles. This is not an ‘easy option’ unless the students loves the subject.
