ART, CRAFT AND DESIGN in conjunction with Art, Photography at Boston Spa Academy
During the Art, Craft and Design course students will be introduced to a variety of experiences that explore a range of two-dimensional and/or threedimensional media, processes and techniques. Students will experience both traditional and new media such as drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, photography and digital manipulation for different purposes and in a variety of methods and scale. Students will use sketchbooks/workbooks/journals to underpin their work where appropriate.
Students will explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of art, craft and design, from the past and contemporary practice, including European and non-European examples which is integral to the investigating and making processes. Students will learn analytical skills in responses to these examples which will be demonstrated through practical and critical activities informing their understanding of different styles, genres and traditions. Students will be guided through the four assessment objectives that will contextualise the content and skills presented in their portfolio. They learn the importance of communication, visual language, identity and expression as part of the process.
