What will you study?

In Year 12 you will produce a portfolio that will consist of two coursework units that reflect your ideas, skills and use of media. In Year 13 you will develop your practical work, gaining greater expertise through practical application of a range of media. You will write a personal investigation (1,000-3,000 words) which will be a visual Presentation on a chosen topic, that you would have started in Year 12.

For the Fine Art Examination you will select a question from the paper to explore during a six week period before executing a final piece under controlled examination conditions.

You will develop your observational drawing skills and have the opportunity to explore Painting, Printmaking,
