Art and Design GCSE
Students follow the Edexcel GCSE Art and Design course 5AD01/02 – 5GC01/02. They complete two projects – Expression and Propaganda.
Project A : Expression
Expression is the theme for the Autumn Term. In this project learners study and explore the technique and style of three artists, to inspire and develop their own work. As part of this project they produce 1 final piece and lots of work in their sketchbook. They learn how to paint using acrylic, monoprint, linoprint and how to use Photoshop.
Project B: Propaganda
In this project, students start by researching three artists; Christopher Nevinson, Henri Moore and Paul Nash. These artists included meaning in their artwork relating to war. For this project, students create their own pieces of propaganda Art on an issue that they feel strongly about eg. animal rights or football hooliganism.
