Art and Design

KS3 Art and Design

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality

art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with

the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and

design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more

rigorous understanding of art and design. They should also know how art and design both

reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our

nation.

KS4 AQA GCSE Art and design

Art and design promotes learning across a variety of experiences and through various processes, tools, techniques, materials and resources to generate different kinds of evidence of working and outcomes.

Component 1: Portfolio (60% of GCSE)

The content of the portfolio will be determined by the particular requirements and nature of the course of study undertaken. There is no restriction on the scale of work, media or materials used.

Each student must select and present a portfolio representative of their course of study. The portfolio must include both:

1 A sustained project developed in response to a subject, theme, task or brief evidencing the

journey from initial engagement with an idea(s) to the realisation of intentions. This will give

students the opportunity to demonstrate, through an extended creative response, their ability to draw together different areas of knowledge, skills and/or understanding from across their course of study.

2 A selection of further work resulting from activities such as trials and experiments; skills-based workshops; mini and/or foundation projects; responses to gallery, museum or site visits; work placements; independent study and evidence of the student’s specific role in any group work undertaken.

Component 2: Externally set assignment (40% of GCSE)

AQA will provide a separate externally set assignment for each title, each with seven different starting points. Students must select and respond to one starting point from their chosen title.

The externally set assignment provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate, through an extended creative response, their ability to draw together different areas of knowledge, skills and/or understanding in response to their selected starting point.

The extended creative response must explicitly evidence students’ ability to draw together different areas of knowledge, skill and/or understanding from initial engagement with their selected starting point through to their realisation of intentions in the 10 hours of supervised time.
