Y10 Art students will develop Component 1: A Personal Coursework Portfolio, through exploring the areas of painting & drawing, mixed media, 3D and critical studies during an Autumn term Foundation course. They will respond to a theme such as Surfaces. Work produced during the Foundation course will then lead into a personal project that is produced during the remainder of Y10 and the Autumn term of Y11. 学生们 will learn how to develop and explore their creative ideas, producing sustained outcomes using materials of their choice. This project is inspired by a visit to the V&A Museum in September.
