Introduction to KS4: Edexcel Art & Design (2AD01)

During Key Stage 4 students will work on given projects to build up a portfolio of work. They will complete coursework which will make up 60% of their grade and they will complete an externally set assignment which will be 40% of their final grade. Students will learn about a wide range of materials, techniques and processes. They will also be expected to discover artists and art movements to provide inspiration for their work. Students will develop their skills both collaboratively and independently and they will receive excellent, guided feedback from our outstanding art staff. Students will work in sketchbooks so that they can effectively show their creative journey.
