Year 9 seeks to rehearse boys for Art and Design as an option in Key Stage 4.  The use of a sketchbook becomes more important and embedding the skills involved in the design process take priority.  Homework takes become more important this year to inform and personalise lesson activity. 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 Portrait, typography and 1960s termly briefs. A selected number of boys will be asked to involve themselves in Primary Liaison in the Summer Term.
