Level 3 Visual Arts Painting

Course Description

This course builds on skills and understandings learned in Level 2 Visual arts. The focus is on drawing, painting and mixed media processes. Learners select their own theme or subject matter and complete a painting investigation using the conventions of painting practice based on artist models. Learners are expected to take personal photographs of their chosen subject, research own artist models and complete a visual diary to support their practical work. The course is time intensive and requires learners to be working hard in all classes and making time for home learning.

Internally assessed tasks are used as a basis to produce finished work for the external three x A1 board folio submission.

Topics Covered: 

Compulsory Internal AS/US

- Use drawing to demonstrate understanding of conventions appropriate to painting.

Optional Internal AS/US

- Systematically clarify ideas using drawing informed by established painting practice.

External AS
