Art & Design
At KS3 The Art and Design curriculum at Rooks Heath is designed to provide a solid foundation of knowledge and promote rapid skills acquisition allowing students to explore and experiment with the widest amount of media, materials and techniques possible. It seeks to expand the role of art as a life skill that students can go onto to develop and share later in life. Students are taught how to communicate their ideas through sketching, modelling and annotation, working in a sketchbook. Students work on themed projects and study a range of influential artists and craft workers and produce work inspired by their research and ideas. Students are timetabled for Art and Design for one hour a week and are expected to consolidate this knowledge at home with 1 hour of independent study a fortnight.
Homework tasks and guidance can be found in the sketchbook within the project brief and are clearly marked. These tasks are integral to each project and form part of the overall assessment.
