Students in Year 9 have one lesson of Art per week enabling them to really embed the key skills learned throughout Year 7 and 8. They begin the year with our popular observational drawing unit based on chocolates. This focuses on the key skills required to ensure a smooth transition to GCSE Art and Design. Students research and present their work in their own original way and learn the skills needed for GCSE Art. Painting skills are built upon during our Impressionism unit and students are able to create a group piece inspired by Monet.
