Entry Requirements

Course Content

In this one-year GCSE course, you will study a range of 3D artists, use a variety of 3D art materials and develop ideas creatively. Drawing activities and annotations about the work are compulsory. Projects will include references to first hand sources and by the end of the project you will have brought all your ideas together. Work is mounted or presented in a sketchbook, and annotated to explain all your ideas. Basic art materials will be required for you to use at home. You will complete a large coursework unit, and then the final exam is a practical project which you have a few weeks to prepare for, to create the final piece(s) under exam conditions for ten hours.
