Visual Arts - Year 11 2023 Deadline December 20th 2023

Dear Parents and students,

For the remainder this autumn term it is important that students have all portfolio work up-to-date and mounted. Please see example boards with expected work.

To the very highest possible standard of finish. Please work with your child to check their work is complete and handed into school to be mounted on their portfolio board.

By the end of December students must have a drawing and a painting outcome.(We will start the painted outcome soon and this will be worked on in the two day exam on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th December too).

Please make sure students are in school all day for the exam time on on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th December.

Working hard in lessons and completing the HW drawing and painting tasks for 1 hour a week should be enough time to complete all work.

Parents and carers can support their child by providing paints at home to use, the paint pot borrowing scheme is a deposit of £10 for a palette of 8 colours and a brush and refundable at the end of the year. Please pay via Parent pay.

Art clubs are available for all GCSE students Monday and Friday 3.30-5pm, and Thursday lunchtimes please encourage regular attendance.

Please do get in touch if you need any support.

Ms C. Henderson

Curriculum Leader of Visual Arts Faculty
