AQA GCSE ART & DESIGN: FINE ART 4200 (60% controlled assessment & 40% Externally Set Task) GCSE Art and Design provides students with a wide range of creative, exciting and stimulating opportunities to explore their interests in ways that are both personally relevent and developmental in nature. This two unit specification enables students to develop their ability to actively engage in the processes of Art and Design to build creative skills through learning and doing, to develop imaginative and intuitive ways of working and develop knowledge and understanding of media, materials and technologies in historical and contemporary contexts, societies and cultures. Assessment is by Unit 1: Portfolio of Work (Controlled Assessment) 60 per cent and Unit 2: Externally Set Task 40 per cent. It is a strong foundation for further progression to Art and Design related courses such as A-level Art and Design and enhanced vocational and career pathways. During Year 10 students will complete two projects; Cultures and Identity (as a progression from work completed in year 9). Each project consists of exploring the work of either other cultures or artists as a starting point and developing their own ideas on the theme. Observational drawing and photography underpin the work, as well as refining techniques in drawing and sculpture. Students also go on an art trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in year 10 where they produce a sketchbook of drawn studies and notes, then back at school add in photographs from the visit and develop ideas from the artwork they have studied on the day. During Year 11 students begin a third project after being given 3 starting points to choose from. This is a mock externally set assignment, therefore students work under guidance but with more independence to produce a final piece of work unaided during their mocks week. In January of Year 11 students are given the Externally Set Assignment, and will produce a sketchbook of work in response to a chosen theme from seven starting points provided by AQA. This culminates in a 10 hour controlled assessment to complete a final piece of work. Homework: Students complete 2 hours of homework per week. Art and Design host extra time on two afternoons per week from 3.30-5.00 where students can complete both homework and artwork outside of timetabled lessons under supervision from their teachers.
