Curriculum: Key Stage 4

KS4 Curriculum Guide - Year 10 Textiles (Art)
Term 1Skills project  
COMPONENT ONE Introductory skills project In term 1, students use their summer holiday homework to inspire a series of drawings and paintings in order to develop their artistic and creative ability. They get the opportunity to experiment with a wide range of textiles techniques in ‘workshop style’ lessons and produce samples of these techniques.
Assessment: Continuous verbal formative assessment Peer/ self-assessment Textiles work assessed formally using AQA assessment objectivesKey Words and Terms
 
Term 2Skills project  
COMPONENT ONE Introductory skills project In term 2, students continue to do tasks designed to enhance their drawing and painting skills. Students will develop some of their drawings further into larger scale work and into pattern repeats. Students experiment with more textiles techniques, producing samples for these.

Term 3'Glorious Nature' Project  
COMPONENT ONE ‘Glorious nature’ project AO1/AO3 Investigations, analysis & experiments In term 3, students begin their Y10 mock exam project focusing on themes inspired by the natural world. This term focuses on research; analysis; sources of inspiration and experimenting with media and materials as well as textiles techniques and processes. Students will produce a series of drawings and paintings and collect as wide a range of primary and secondary sources of inspiration as possible. They will engage with a number of relevant artists and designers demonstrating a critical understanding of sources. Students will show that they can develop ideas through purposeful investigations by producing a range of ‘Working in the style of’ samples for the artists/ designers they have studied.
Assessment: Continuous verbal formative assessment Peer/ self-assessment Assessment focus: AO1, AO3Key Words and Terms
 
Term 4'Glorious nature' project  
COMPONENT ONE ‘Glorious nature’ project AO2 - Exploring & developing ideas During this term, students use their sources of inspiration to inspire a range of initial ideas. These sketches are then ‘brought to life’ using a range of different materials. Students then explore their initial ideas further by experimenting with a range of drawing and painting media; materials; textiles techniques and processes. Three of these ideas are then developed further before selecting one to use as a final idea. At this stage students are still considering different materials, techniques and processes and have not decided on the most suitable ones yet so will produce alternative samples for as many ways of decorating/ constructing their final idea as possible.

Term 5'Glorious Nature' project 
COMPONENT ONE ‘Glorious nature’ project AO2 - Refining final idea At this stage, most students have decided which techniques and processes are the most suitable to use but are still refining their use of materials, colour, pattern, shape, style, imagery & texture. Students will spend time refining every different part of their intended practical outcome. Previous samples will be developed further. Students will produce mock-ups to trial different shapes and styles as well as a prototype to check the final appearance and function of their intended outcome. Once students have done this they will produce a refined final idea that incorporates all modifications that arise from the ‘refining final idea’ stage

Term 6'Glorious Nature' project  
COMPONENT ONE ‘Glorious nature’ project AO4 - Presenting a personal response practical outcome During term 6, students will refine each part of their refined final idea further. Trials of all intended techniques and processes will be carried out before students present a personal & meaningful final practical outcome. Students will then begin to prepare for their Y11 mock exam project.
