KS3 – Art
This course follows the English KS3 curriculum for art, adapted for online teaching. Many practical techniques are implemented and this includes; painting, sketching, modelling, digital art and photography. Teachers make use of the webcam feature each week to guide students through the various techniques. The completed pieces of art that are produced by the students are shared for viewing and feedback. This may be during the session or week to week as part of an assignment or an independent study activity.
How is the course planned and assessed?
This course is taught as a series of projects, one per term. Each project follows a broadly similar structure, with an introduction to the topic, planning, research, thinking and reflection stages. Teachers guide students by modelling practical techniques in Art and Design, so that students can complete a final piece of work by building up a portfolio of artwork etc. Students receive feedback on their final project based on the development of skills in the following areas:
- Creativity and curiosity
- Critical and courageous thinking
Students create work in their paper sketchbooks, which are then compiled and digitised for online assessment. Students use a PowerPoint template provided by the teacher to submit photos of their sketchbook work every two weeks. It is recommended that students have access to Microsoft Office, but they can also use Office in-browser as this is provided through their InterHigh account.
- Concept Art
- Modern Art Portraits – Photography and Painting
