A basic skills course will start the year as an attempt to ease the transition from primary to secondary school and to standardise learning. The year will focus on the use of selected visual elements: line, shape and tone. Outcomes for each term will be in the media of painting and drawing, graphics and 3D work. Boys will produce work as a response to landscape, figurative and ethnic termly briefs.
