Our Vision for Art & Design
Key Stage 3
Students learn about and explore the formal elements through key skills in drawing and painting. During the year they will experience working with a range of materials and techniques including printmaking and clay. Work produced is in response to contextual sources.
Students further develop and demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding learnt in Year 7. Drawing and painting are again fundamental. More complex printmaking and clay techniques are explored alongside introducing other new materials and processes. Students are given choices to encourage independence and more variety of outcomes. Work produced is in response and informed by a range of contextual sources.
Students develop mastery of the skills learnt in Year 7 and 8. Students are encouraged to work with greater independence and relate their work to topical as well as personal issues, informed by a wider range of contextual sources. They develop further understanding of the requirements to proceed to GCSE study and are equipped with the skills required for the course.
