Transition and Induction Phase (Year 7 & 8)

Program of study

Students receive 1 lesson of Art & Design per week. Students will begin the course by undertaking a baseline test which assesses making, knowledge, investigating and evaluation. The Program of study for the rest of the stage is based upon developing understanding around use of the formal elements though different activities including digital design.

Assessment & Homework

Students will be assessed through appropriate formative and summative assessments throughout each project. A variety of homework tasks will be set and published on ‘show my homework’. Typically a homework will involve completing classwork. There will be one substantial homework project set per term.

 Content covered

 

Students complete a baseline test then learn about colour theory, how to present visual information and about typography design. Students then begin a drawing project looking at recording from toys and natural forms. They draw in different ways and for different purposes, including formal and analytical drawing. Students investigate narrative using their images of toys and natural forms. Storyboarding and comic strips are used to develop their ideas. They produce mixed media work based on the narrative they develop. Students are introduced to the work of illustrators and animators and asked to make connections with their own narrative focused work. Skills covered include practical and written analysis and developing a well realised final piece which includes the use of digital processes.

 Content covered

 

Students complete the baseline test encapsulating key skills of typography, collage and drawing, refreshing learning from Year 7. They then develop their analytical skills by researching and presenting work about a contemporary artist. Students develop formal drawing skills through a series of activities based on a game entitled ‘Machinarium’, They draw robots and mechanical forms in different ways and for different purposes, including tonal and line drawing. Students use computer game design to plan and develop a final piece which brings together their skills and knowledge of the artists and other sources they have studied.

They are introduced to photography processes and digital manipulation and use this to develop their final outcome.
