Art

Edexcel Art and Design

The GCSE Art course encourages students to think for themselves whilst showing them how to use a wide range of materials and methods. They analyse art and explore their own creativity whilst learning new techniques. The unendorsed paper expects students to use different media- Drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and printmaking are some of the processes learned during the course. The primary aim of the course is to help the students to learn to be independent artists.
