Art

HABOYSED 0217

Beautifully designed objects, fashion, buildings, cars, films, illustrations, photographs and ideas surround us. It is easy to forget that artists have carefully considered, developed and realised their creation.

Through contextual studies, students will explore historical, social, cultural, moral and political aspects of Art.

We believe that Art provides an opportunity to develop expression, creativity, confidence and self-esteem.  Students are encouraged to take creative risks through experimentation with a diverse range of materials, techniques and processes.

Students learn how to solve problems creatively and how to reflect on and analyse their own and others’ work developing critical thinking skills.

For further information contact Kat Avloniti K.Avloniti@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk

Curriculum summary

Key Stage 3

  • ‘Identity and portraiture Project’ – teaching foundational knowledge and skills in art such as the seven formal elements, colour theory, mark making and their experiences of transitioning into secondary school.
  • ‘Movement Project’ – Building on analytical skills and consolidating skills learnt in the previous topic through an experimental and expressing project.
  • ‘Public Art’ – Introduction to new and contemporary practices in the art world and synthesizing these into classroom projects. We build self-esteem and exploration within a project which looks at visual literacy, helping the pupils to understand images that they see daily.
  • ‘Texture and Surfaces Project’ - Using the environment to explore textures and classical artistic processes. This introduces the pupils to new media and techniques.
  • ‘Sugar and Fairtrade Project’ – Pupils explore more media and techniques within a mixed media piece and consider the effects of the sugar farming industry and child labour.
  • ‘Still Life Project’ – Pupils investigate one of the world’s most classical art subjects. They reinforce ideas around recording and mark making which culminates into a GCSE taster project.

Key Stage 4

  • Year 9 – This course is structured into three themes which will build the skill set needed. They will work on revisiting and reinforcing formal elements of art alongside key theories and their impact. Also pupils will be supported in improving their analytical and evaluative skills. The year will be delivered thematically with elements of independant learning enabling students to solve problems creatively. In addition they will learn how to reflect on and analyse their own and others’ work developing critical thinking skills.
  • Year 10 – This course is structured into two themes which will consolidate the skill set needed, ‘Natural Form’ and ‘Identity’. Pupils will be supported in improving their analytical and evaluative skills, building on their previous learning. The year will be delivered thematically with elements of independent learning enabling students to solve problems creatively. In addition they will develop reflective and analytical skills, showing criticality towards their own and others’ work.
  • Year 11 – This course is divided into two sections ‘Natural Form’ and then the exam project. Pupils will develop contextual studies and investigations of historical, cultural, moral and political aspects of Art, building on their previous learning. The year will be delivered thematically with an expectation of independent learning enabling students to solve problems creatively with clear reflection and analysis.

Students will take the GCSE in Art and Design in Year 11 from EdExcel exam board.

  • Unit 1 5ADO1/ Unit 2 5AD02
  • Unit 1 - Coursework (60%)
  • Unit 2 - Externally set assignment (40%). 

Assessment

Key Stage 3

Key Stage 3 assessment focuses on four main groups. The objectives evolve around the generation of ideas, making objects or artifacts, evaluation and knowledge. This helps to provide consistency in preparation for GCSE. Summative assessment closes each project and students are provided with a level based on the work evident in their sketchbook portfolio.

Key Stage 4

In Key Stage 4, work is assessed through the four main assessment objectives that focus on developing ideas, refining, recording and responding. In Year 9, projects last a term each and in Year 10 and 11, students complete two large projects over four terms before commencing their final project for Unit 2.

How to revise and prepare for exams

As we head into a more challenging and demanding curriculum, assessment and examination system it is important that students in all year groups in the Academy understand how to prepare efficiently and successfully for exams.
 
All students sit externally set tests every half term which they must prepare for fully. These are cumulative tests which means they test more knowledge and skills as the year progresses.
 
The end of year exam will test knowledge and skills across the whole year period, for all years groups. We believe in teaching our students how to prepare for exams as they are an important life skill.

GCSE revision support and intervention for Year 11 Art begins in September and runs until the Summer examinations.

See our exam preparation page for information about helpful revision guides and timetables, as well as details of additional interventions for each subject.
