Key Stage 4 students work towards the Art, Craft and Design GCSE. Inspired by trips to galleries and workshops they will complete a range of coursework containing preparatory sketchbook studies and final pieces. Using a variety of materials, they will investigate subjects from Pop Art to Urban Landscape. Techniques explored will include polyblock printing, observational drawing, wax resist, batik, clay sculpture, etching and collage to name a few. Based on their own strengths and interests they will be encouraged to develop ideas independently through research and experimentation for the final exam project and timed response.
