AQA Fine Art

Hockney Joiner

Students fine tune a range of 2D drawing, painting and printing skills producing a large scale outcome, inspired by the photographic ‘joiners’ created by David Hockney. Students are asked to take the photographs needed for the joiner, during their Year 10 summer holiday.

Pre-public exam project

Students are given an inspirational title from which they develop their own project, adhering carefully to the GCSE assessment criteria. This project culminates in a 5 hour practical examination completed in the art rooms.

Externally Set Assignment (Final Exam Project)

Students work from a starting point chosen from the externally set examination paper. As above they produce a body of work which carefully adheres to the assessment criteria, demonstrating drawing, analytical research, compositional design and media experimentation. The assignment culminates in 10 hour practical exam taken over two days within the art rooms.
