Recommended Prior Learning

Students will work on an individually lead programme based around a theme of their choosing. Students will study a range of artist models and apply the knowledge, skills and techniques learned into their own practical work. Students will complete three Achievement Standards during the year. Please note that both 11ADG and 11ART offer the same standards. If you select both you will gain a maximum of 15 credits. 


Year 11 Art leads directly to the senior specialist Art disciplines of Design, Photography, Painting, Sculpture, and Printmaking.
