OCR GCSE Art & Design is a practical course which requires sketchbooks, study sheets and main pieces to be presented for moderation and final assessment during the second year of the course. This is worth 60% of the final marks.
40% of the marks are achieved through an externally set task (10 hour practical).
The students study 4 main areas throughout the 2 year course, working from observations, using different materials and techniques and researching artists to develop a set theme or topic in a personal way.
Skills and techniques are explained and practised with opportunities to visit National art galleries, meet practicing artists and participate in workshops.
