Year 9 ART

Students will work on a project per term. The course is structured to closely link to the assessment objectives used in Key stage 4 and Key Stage 5.

Pupils will learn about form, context, content, process and mood when analysing the work of other artists, craftspeople and designers.

In Year 9 Art students will be taught using the formal elements of line, shape, form, colour, texture and pattern, through experimentation.

Students will learn to record their ideas and observations to help develop ideas for each project.

Students will be encouraged to be creative and realise their intentions in final outcomes for each project.

Students are baseline assessed in the Autumn term through practical work in class, and again termly.

Assessment will be completed using the Art and Design Assessment Objectives throughout the Year 9 course.
