All students study Art during year 7 and 8 and have one Art lesson per week. During the academic year students will carry out a range of projects under the umbrella theme of, The Visual Elements. The carefully planned and resourced projects allow students to fulfill all aspects of the 艺术 & Design National 课程 and above all, provide students with confidence and expertise in the subject.
For students entering year 9, Art becomes an optional subject. The Art Department offer three different specialisms within the overall qualification of GCSE Art, Craft & Design. This allows students to specialise their skills and follow their particular interests – Art, 3D Art or Photography. Art is a popular choice for students who enjoy drawing and painting. 3D Art allows students to further explore sculpture and ceramics. Photography is a fantastic option for those students whose creativity take a more digital route. The Photography course is very well resourced, boasting 10 digital SLR cameras, lighting equipment and specialist printers. Each specialism is a 3 year course which allows students to develop, expand and refine their knowledge and skills as well as prepare them for 艺术, Craft & Design courses at A-Level, college or apprenticeships.
There are two after school Art Clubs which runs every Monday & Tuesday 3:00 – 4:00 and welcome students from all year groups. During Intensive Week, 艺术 often features as a popular activity and is an excellent opportunity for students to take on stimulating new challenges and work in a range of media.
For students in Years 7, 8 and 9 there is one piece of homework per term. This task should take them between 1 and 2 hours to complete. 百乐彩官网work is set during lessons and recorded on ShowMy家庭作业 which is available via the homepage. Students in years 10 & 11 have weekly homework tasks which are largely tailored individually in order to be relevant to their personal projects.
Art Teachers also use the app, Pinterest which students in year 9, 10 and 11 are encouraged to use and follow as this is an excellent resource for students studying GCSE Art, Craft & Design. Teachers have created pin boards for each year group and all projects covered. To follow the Art Department search, 布里斯托尔 Met 艺术.
