Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Belcher

This is a practical art course which aims to develop students’ skills and explore a wide range of techniques and media. Students will be encouraged to draw on their own experience of their environment, to find images from a wide variety of sources, to explore ideas through art media and to be critically aware of artists’ works and processes.

Students undertake a programme aimed at developing important wet and dry media skills and techniques. Building on their work in Year 10, students further explore the idea of informed practice and research a range of artists’ models for use in their own work.
