<ol><li> 1. Gcse Art and Design with Fine Art and Photography </li><li> 2. Your Art and Design GCSE course is made up of two elements, portfolio work and the final project/exam. Your portfolio will be created during year 10 and the first term of year 11. You will work on a variety of projects during this time and at the end of year 11 you select your best work for submission for marking. This portfolio will account for 60% of your final grade. The exam paper is given out in January of year 11 and you have until Easter to prepare for your final 10 hour exam. This last terms work accounts for 40% of the final grade. Projects The first project you will be working on in year 10 is going to be a Mini-Foundation course called Flight. The majority of you took part in the trip to Birdland to start to collect resources. On this Mini-Foundation course you will have the opportunity to explore different mediums including: ink, charcoal, graphite, acrylic, clay, photography and collage. </li><li> 3. AO 1: - Creating drawings, paintings, photos from real objects that are in front of you. Look at other artists make notes and drawings. Include sketches, drawings, paintings, photos and images that closely link with your theme and have significance or interest to you. Include different ideas for you project and explain them. Creatively present research on artists who link with your theme. All of your work is marked according to how well you have met the 4 ASSESSMENT OBJECTIVES. A brief summary of these is below. AO 2: - Refine your ideas, experiment with different media. . Make drawings/studies from their work to help you to understand how they have used different materials. . </li><li> 4. AO 1 Example work Research recording ideas, artist studies </li><li> 5. AO 2 Experiments with media and refining your ideas. </li><li> 6. AO 3: - Practical Development - record and present ideas Experiment with different processes, materials and techniques. Which processes work and what do you want to keep? include study sketches, photos etc. to create different ideas for your project. Record any changes that you make to your ideas in your sketchbook. AO 4: - Realising intentions (creating your final piece) Include evidence in your sketchbook that shows that you have experimented with different materials and techniques. Include evidence of how your ideas have developed from the start of your projects to the end, with evidence of how it has helped you to look at others work. Produce a finished main piece of work that brings together the whole unit of work. Include an evaluation of your project and final piece. </li><li> 7.

WHAT inspired you? WHY was it successful or not? WHAT else could you have done or changed? </li><li> 10. How your work is marked. Each AO is marked out of 20. At the start of Year 10 your marks might seem quite low. This is because we mark using the GCSE standards from the first week of the course. By the end of the first term, most students start to get C grades (10 or 11 out of 20) for some of the AOs. Here is how we mark your work: </li><li> 11. Limited 1-4 marks Typically G grade I aim to be limited within AO1 and I want to develop ideas from starting points that are given to me by the teacher. I will make an attempt to research the work of others. With AO2, I expect to explore a tiny number of resources and processes that connect to my ideas. This target should prove I could work within a limited band if I can meet it. doing drawings, sketches or other types of recording work, I hope to make it look patchy and will avoid working from real life whenever possible. I dont expect to do any writing. This might indicate how limited my work can be. With AO4, I want my outcomes to have nothing to do with my sketchbook work. I aim to have the outcome incomplete. This would let me achieve a mark in the limited band. Basic 5-8 marks Typically E/F grades For AO1, I want to use a few artists and designers in my work, keeping them as starting points. I will start to use key words to show I understand the work Ive researched. This could offer me a mark in the basic band. In AO2, I aim to try out only a small selection of ideas for my experiments. I expect to prove how I will refine these with a range of resources and processes a couple of times. This target should prove I could work within the basic band if I can meet it. For AO3, I intend to show some focus when recording my ideas. When Im writing about my own work or observations I will attempt to link key words with my studies. This might indicate how basic my work can be. When completing work for AO4, I want to produce a definite outcome that links to my sketchbook work a little. This could lead to a basic outcome. In using AO1, I hope to use my own ideas as a starting point for researching others With AO2 at the moment, my work sometimes looks For AO3, I would like to show recording in a range of different ways and want to use By working through AO4, I want my final </li><li> 12. It is really useful if you look at the list of equipment that you will need and start to build up a collection. By week 3 of year 10 you will need an A3 sketchbook and pencils, pens and watercolours. Every week you will be expected to carry out homework tasks and attend an afterschool catch up club if needed. Good luck! </li></ol>
