Art & Design

During the school closure please use the opportunity to be creative!

We have provided you with lots of interesting and exciting work that can be accessed through google classroom (please contact your Art teacher if you are having any issues.)

We have produced a brief summary of your learning overviews by year group, and then specifically a ‘learning breakdown’ so you know each activity – parents and carers are very welcome to join in the learning!

Learning overview Years 7-9

Your online Art lessons are going to have a focus on developing key drawing skills using your basic equipment (pencil, pen,ruler, rubber).  Our expectation is that you will access the tasks and follow steps to complete them as well as you possibly can.

 

You ideally need to submit your work by the date listed via Google Classroom or email to your teacher. You will also need to keep your Art work together to bring it in when we return to school.

 

The work has an emphasis on building key skills. This will cover your knowledge and confidence in applying drawing techniques. You will also be expected to develop your own ideas and to respond to the work of specific artists.  

 

Take the opportunity, of working more independently, to explore your individual style and preferences as you work at meeting the requirements of each task. 

 

Learning overview Year 10 Art & Design

 

You will need to continue and develop your current and previous work to the best of your ability.  You will check through the work you have to date and will make decisions about how to develop aspects of this work further. 

 

You are expected to complete the tasks set on line that will build upon this project work and guide you through further exploration of the social issues theme. 

 

Learning Overview Year 10 Textile Design

 

Your online textiles lessons will consist of a new mini project that will focus on developing your drawing and analytical research skills. Some of you may have your current personal project work with you and you can continue with your individually themed portfolio in terms of observational drawings, design development ideas and artist research. 

 

The online work will be accessed via google classroom and Show My Homework. You ideally need to submit your work by the date listed via Google Classroom or email to your teacher. You will also need to keep your Textile Design work together to bring it in when we return to school. Take the opportunity, of working more independently, to explore your individual style and preferences as you work at meeting the requirements of each task. 

 

Learning overview Year 11

 

Your portfolio and any resources for working from home should have been collected.  Please liaise with your teacher if this requires collection. 

 

Your portfolio and its two projects including ‘Street’ and ‘Surroundings’ should be developed where necessary to raise assessment in any of the four assessment objectives.  Please work through the checklists shared by your teacher to work through your evidence and to make decisions about what you should develop and extend.

Department Overview

The art and design department is a busy, thriving department consisting of 4 teachers and 4 specialist spaces. In the 2019-20 academic year we are very excited to be implementing GCSE Textile Design alongside our existing GCSE Art, Craft and Design course. We are also working within a new STEM curriculum to introduce Textile Design processes within years 7 & 8.

Ethos statement

The number of jobs in the UK’s creative industries rose by 5 per cent in 2016, compared to the 1.2 per cent increase in the wider UK workforce. Almost 2m people are now employed in the UK creative industries, with 3.04m jobs in the wider creative economy including:

Advertising, Architecture, Art & Antiques, Crafts, Design, Digital media, Engineering, Fashion design, Games design, Graphic design, Photography

Studying art and design greatly supports interest and future careers in all these areas as well as being a tool for developing creative thinking, practical working, research, problem solving and analysis, all useful skills that make strong links to other areas of learning.

We live in a world full of imagery and designed products, a world growing rapidly with new technologies (Apple currently employs approximately 80,000 full time employees).  An eye for design, visual appreciation and an ability to create something new is a relevant attribute and one that we greatly facilitate through our curriculum provision.

Art and Design encourages the individual to develop a range of skills whilst also building a personal style and making individual choices in the adaption and refinement of what has already been explored.  Students are exploratory and experiment with and strengthen their use of materials and processes within different creative disciplines. We aspire to develop confident individuals who relish in their own decision making and independent application within the areas of:

  • Fine art– drawing, painting, mixed media, print making…
  • Graphic communication– illustration, advertising, computer graphics, photography…
  • Textile design– fashion, printed/dyed/embellished/stitched textiles
  • Three dimensional design– sculpture, jewellery, environmental art & design, architectural design…
  • Photography– including computer manipulation

KS3 Curriculum Overview (Years 7-9)

The Year 7 curriculum places a significant emphasis on good working practices. Projects will cover a variety of foundation skills seeking to establish and build the learners confidence with understanding and application of the key visual elements in Art: SPACE, SHAPE, LINE, FORM, COLOUR, TEXTURE, COMPOSITION.  A varied and contrasting range of sources and starting points including modern artists and designers, illustration, typography and historical practice informs exploration of the visual elements.

The Year 8 curriculum raises expectations of the students to further broaden and deepen their knowledge of artistic practices through a sequence of projects that include a wide variety of Art and Design media and techniques covering 2 and 3 dimensional work. A particular emphasis upon developing skills in drawing underpins experiences.  

The Year 9 curriculum operates as a foundation year for GCSE. Students will be encouraged to show greater knowledge, understanding and application of professional practices both in terms of the research, analysis and responses to Artists that they create and in their personal choices and approaches to working with a wide range of materials, techniques and processes as their ideas develop.

Tracking and assessment in the lower school focuses upon 4 key areas in line with GCSE assessment objectives.

  • AO1: Develop ideas through investigations, demonstrating critical understanding of sources
  • AO2: Refine work by exploring ideas, selecting and experimenting with appropriate media, materials, techniques and processes.
  • AO3: Record ideas, observations and insights relevant to intentions as work progresses.
  • AO4: Present a personal and meaningful response that realises intentions and demonstrates understanding of visual language.

KS4 Curriculum Overview (Years 10-11)

GCSE Art & Design

With two components, comprising a ‘Portfolio’ and an ‘Externally set assignment’, the specification provides students with a range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to develop and explore their personal interests in art and design.  It allows for progression from KS3 whilst providing a strong foundation for further study at AS and A-level as well as vocational pathways. AQA 2017

Students continue to develop and deepen their knowledge, understanding and application within at least 2 of the following areas of study:

  • Fine art– drawing, painting, mixed media, print making…
  • Graphic communication– illustration, advertising, computer graphics, photography…
  • Textile design– fashion, printed/dyed/embellished/stitched textiles
