10 & 11
In the first term, students will be introduced to the basic skills of photography. They will then move onto producing coursework. For this they will be set assignments that will be open to a wide range of interpretation and development.
Finally they will do a practical exam, which will be like another practical project but timed and under exam conditions.
At the end of the course they will put up an exhibition of all your work.
There are two units of work to complete.
Unit 1: Personal Portfolio in Art and Design
Unit 2: Externally Set Assignment in Art and Design
Pupils will complete a number of assignments on various aspects of the media: TV, Film, Advertising, Radio and Newspapers. The course will be both practical and academic.
Practical work forms the major focus of the course. This is supported by visits to Museums and Art Galleries.
