What to study?

The aim of this examination, whether they have or have not studied particular artists throughout the year, is for students use their critical mind. They will show an ability to formulate their own ideas, finding their own opinions through their interpretive writings. Using artist models studied, materials provided, plates and sources provided.

As I have mentioned in my introduction, the ideas of the individual artist are important because interpretations of an artist's work may be overly critically evaluated by others. We will teach students to evaluate and consider other world views and historical events, sifting through information on the internet and in theoretical art books.

This will allow and encourage students to:
  • write in a concise and a well reasoned way
  • present an informed point of view
  • use plates and other sources and materials to provide the best answers

Section 2

Questions 1 - 3

Students must be aware of the frames to demonstrate their writings showing a coherent, sustained, convincing and well reasoned points of view, using their powers of observation explaining comprehensively in relationship to the question. Students’ using appropriate examples is explained to justify their arguments. Students demonstrating critical arguments and historical explanations to a complex, logical, may be extensive understanding of the visual arts.
