L1 Art Visual

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Smith

Required Prior Learning

It is advisable/or at HOD discretion that students who wish to enter L1 Visual Art must have completed a Year 10 Visual Art course, either the full or half year course. The course must have been completed satisfactorily in terms of behaviour and achievement. If the criteria are met then students can advance to L1 Visual Art. Students can only select one Art option at L1 as it draws from the same standards.

Students will learn to develop practical ideas through drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture using a thematic approach. They will formulate a body of work using artist models to inspire and inform their practical exploration of ideas. 

Internal Standards: Are worth 4 and 6 credits each and these two standards are both a combination of research and practical work.

External Portfolio: This is a submission of practical work worth 12 credits in total and is externally assessed. Essentially, this folio is based on the work established in the Internals that are completed during the first two terms of the year.

The folio comprises of two A1 panels which show how students have used their chosen artist models and integrated them into their own work. The work must show a development and sequence of logical ideas which are investigated, developed and refined to produce finished conclusions.
