KS4 Curriculum Guide - Year 11 Textiles (Art)
Term 1Y11 Mock exam project  
COMPONENT ONE Y11 mock exam project AO1/AO3 Investigations, analysis & experiments In term 1, students select from a range of different briefs before beginning their Y11 mock exam project. 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 2Y11 Mock exam project  
COMPONENT ONE Y11 mock exam 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 3Y11 Mock exam Project  
COMPONENT ONE Y11 mock exam 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.
