Being creative is the next big thing. Every good employer realises that creativity and good design are important qualities, so your creativity isn’t just a way of satisfying your artistic soul, it can open the door to exciting career opportunities as well. This popular GCSE is a practical course that allows you to be as creative as you want to be. You will experience a whole range of different media, techniques and processes. From charcoal to computers, you just can’t have enough ideas when it comes to expressing yourself. The emphasis in this course is learning by doing, so you’ll be able to create imaginative personal work. It’s the work you produce that counts.
Over the two years of the course you will produce three separate sketchbooks showing how your skills have progressed. In year 10 you will investigate Nature, in year 11 you will investigate Man Made Surfaces and Objects. Finally, you will produce a sketchbook based on on of the 7 theme choices from AQA.
