As part of developing and expanding our art departing and catering for all needs. We started a new course - GCSE Photography to help those who enjoy art/creativity but not the drawing side. We expected one group but we ended up with 3 (not complaining). We've just completed one term with our year 10 and this schemes of work I wrote was a success. As a result of our success, I'm sharing this with you all. If anyone is starting a new course or simply something different then this is for you. It will save you a lot of time and best thing is it worked. It's a 14 week course and this can be easily adapted to your dept/school. PowerPoints are available and will be on a separate advert.
"Students will be introduced and gain knowledge on digital photography. This will entail of photography techniques and understanding how to maximise a digital compact camera settings. Students will study Still Life focusing on ‘Natural Form’ as the theme, which later students can take lead to other parts of the project. Students will explore different techniques, processes and artists for inspiration. Students will complete the project with a sketchbook and 3-4 final images"
