The course encourages a broad approach, which allows candidates to develop a sound grounding in a number of areas while still exploring the subject in depth. The specification builds on the skills, knowledge and understanding acquired through the GCSE Art course. From very early in the course you will be encouraged to pursue your own ideas and interests through your work. Students will develop ideas using a range of sources, demonstrating analytical and critical understanding. Experimenting with a selection of media, materials, techniques and processes. Reviewing and refining the work as it progresses. As well as practical studio-based work, students will be expected to keep a sketchbook of responses set as homework.
