Fine Art GCSE at Christ The King College
GCSE Fine Art will provide students with an opportunity to explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to artists and cultures from both Europe and rest of the world. Students will show their understanding of these artists and cultures by producing work practically.
Students will be taught to express themselves as individuals through reference made to other artists’ work. They will be taught various skills of Art production such as understanding of colour, line, tone, texture shape and form. They will also be encouraged to be self-motivated, work safely and carefully select relevant materials. Students will be required to work in one or more area(s) of Fine Art, such as the following, painting and drawing, sculpture, installation and land art, mixed media including collage and assemblage, printmaking, lens based and light media (animation, video and photography)
GCSE Fine Art offers direct access to A-level Art and Design and other further education courses. Students will start to compile a portfolio of work which can be extended at A level and used to apply for higher education courses. There are a wide range of potential career opportunities in the Creative Industries.
