iMatter As An Artist

iMatter As An Artist

INTENT

iMatter as an Artist because I will be able to aesthetically respond to my environment in a creative manner. Art promotes language and social skills often enabling me to say what cannot be said.  I will be able to express my individual thoughts, ideas and opinions in a variety of creative ways so I will have the ability to find solutions to future problems in life.

Year 7

I will explore the root foundations from which all Art grows, by developing a confident understanding of the formal elements and principles of design. I will learn about my self image and become confident with expressing my identity. I will study the power and use of colour and I will be able to explain my opinions on historical artwork which stimulate cultural connections and differences within world. I will be challenged to ensure my drawing techniques are at an intermediate standard.

Year 8

I will look at art from different times and cultures and develop an understanding of critical analysis and seeing life in different ways as I explore perspective and viewpoints. I will learn to construct the figure in proportion, and refine foreshortening techniques on bodies in motion. I will be challenged to ensure my drawing techniques are at an advanced standard. I will explore art movements and learn to paint in an expressive manner by looking at still-life, portraiture and landscape.

Year 9

I will understand and learn to apply our GCSE attainment targets and become familiar with the exam criteria by creating 2 units of coursework with in depth focus. I will accurately record ideas and observations to an advanced standard. I will critically analyse other artists and movements and develop ideas which we can refine by exploring, selecting and experimenting with appropriate media.

Year 10

I will develop techniques both in recording and more independent study. I will produce another unit of work and have the option to specialise in a preferred area of study. I will review, evaluate and refine our art portfolio to an enhanced level and build on skills by having the opportunity for deeper learning activities.

Year 11

I will gain an understanding of the importance of further education within Art and Design and possible career opportunities. I will sit my art and design exam and have the chance to revisit and complete my final portfolio.
