If you enjoy creative work and are keen to develop your visual language skills to explore and express creative ideas, GCSE Art, Craft and Design is the course for you.
This GCSE is largely practical and includes:
- Recording from observation through drawing and taking photographs
- Investigating and developing visual ideas by experimenting with different processes and techniques
- Making artwork in a range of two and three-dimensional media
To support and inspire practical work, students research and analyse the work of artists, both historical and contemporary, to gain a broader understanding of the significance of art, craft and design in society.
During the course, students benefit from art gallery visits to view and respond to original artwork.
The Art, Craft and Design GCSE develops the following broader skills:
- Independent research
- Organisational skills
- Critical and analytical thinking
