Recommended Prior Learning

Nil. However, where the Level 2 Visual Art External Standard has been attempted and not achieved, entry into Level 3 Painting is at the discretion of the HOD.


Students will be examined on their practical knowledge in painting. This will be achieved by students submitting a variety of work consisting of research tasks, drawing notes, a developed sequence of drawings, small works and finished paintings. These will show how the pictorial ideas and the relationships between such ideas, methods, materials and forms are developed, clarified and resolved. Students will use both traditional and contemporary artists as models for their own work throughout the year in order to develop their individual proposals. Students will be encouraged to enter the Scholarship examination.
