I have put together a powerpoint to show my year 11 art students to help them get inspired for their art exam themes. The themes this year are great and I am hoping that we will get some fantastic work created.

To prepare the year 11s for the 10 hour exam they sat a mock exam at the very end of December last year. The theme chosen by the pupil above was sea-life He created the ceramic octopus in the ten hours and then glazed it once it had been fired. Unfortunately the kiln at our school is rather small so I had to slice off its tentacles to fit it in and reattach them after!
Having got this years GCSE marking out if the way I wanted to share with you some of the pupils work. The above pupil selected ‘Movement’ as his theme from the list set this year by AQA. He is fascinated by animals and chose to focus on the texture of fur and muscles in animals for his work.
