GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Art & Design

Art & Design

GCSE ART AND DESIGN

Exam 40%

Controlled Assessment 60%

Led by: Mr S Granger

Exam Board: AQA

What will I be studying?

This exciting, creative and practical GCSE is comprised of two parts. Students will produce a portfolio of Controlled Assessment work; this will add up to 60% of their overall grade. In the Spring Term of Year 11 students will undertake an Externally Set Task, this is a project set by AQA and is worth 40% of their GCSE grade. Students are encouraged during the course to produce project-based work using a variety of different two and three-dimensional media. Students are encouraged to record observations; analyse images/artefacts; develop their own ideas relating to the theme and produce a personal response.

What can I do after wards?

In a world where we are constantly bombarded with visual imagery, visual literacy is increasingly important. A career within the Arts is possible, with hard work, dedication and commitment. This qualification can be studied in Higher Education and can lead successfully to many career paths: designer, animation, freelance artist, advertising, illustration, photographer, film and television, architect, interior designer, textile designer, fashion, teaching and gallery work/curator.
