Art & Design GCSE (Fine Art) at Prince William School
This is a subject for students of all abilities who have a strong interest in creative work in two or three dimensions. During Year 10, students are encouraged to develop their skills and understanding of artistic language through a series of individual projects. The study of artists forms a major part of the GCSE course. Sketchbooks are used for study at home and for class work and are important for the development of skills and ideas. The investigation of themes through study, from direct observation and by the collection of personal resource material, forms an important part of the course. A range of materials is available for use in school and experimentation is encouraged to help students develop an individual approach to their work, although students are expected to acquire their own sketchbooks and a small range of materials. In Year 11, studio based work is developed from themes that allow students to choose both the materials and the approach to study. In the autumn term there will be a gallery visit for Year 11 students. During both Year 10 and Year 11, we encourage the links with local artists and galleries by inviting visiting speakers to the school or take part in workshops.
