L1 Art Digital (Old Creative Media)

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Smith.

This course is a digitally based  Art course where students learn to use Photoshop to design images. Students gain experience using a digital SLR camera and learn to use a Wacom drawing tablet. The course is based around a central theme. Students will complete 2 dimensional designs for a single panel portfolio and a one off moving image piece for an exhibition- this could be a time lapse, short animation or a digital installation. Students will learn to develop and progress their ideas through a range of media and disciplines. It will be an advantage to those students wishing to pursue Design and Illustration and Photography at L2.

Internal Standards: On offer are 2 internal standards worth 5 credits each. These are made up of practice -based research and a practical, one -off exhibition piece of work.

External Portfolio: This is a submission of a series of related pieces of work. It is a continuation of ideas began in the practice based research Internal.

The folio comprises one, A1 panel which is worth 5 credits and is externally assessed at the end of the year.
