Art GCSE

Component 1: Coursework 60%
You will be given a practical introduction to a range of
processes and study other artists’ work. You will learn how
to draw, paint and work in a variety of mixed media too.
You will also learn how to acquire a solid grasp of computer
technique. In your work you will also be taught to pay great
attention to detail in your finished work.

Component 2: Externally-Set Assignment 40%
This component is approached in exactly the same
manner as outlined for component 1. You will be given a
wide choice of starting points by the examination board.
Most of the work will be produced in normal lessons, but
will be finished in a series of timed sessions.
