GRAHAM SCHOOL IS PART OF

Art & Design

GCSE ART AND DESIGN

Exam 40%

Controlled Assessment 60%

Led by: Mr S Granger

Exam Board: AQA

Please note: This course and the Graphic Design and Textiles courses are based on the same awarding code. Only one choice can be made between them. They cannot be taken together.

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 afterwards?

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.

“If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”
