Level 3 Visual Arts Painting
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.
Compulsory Internal AS/US
