Explaining The Visual Elements

Mr Airey’s  S4 class please note : You will find Mr Airey’s Nat 4/5 Portraiture Question  for homework Due 06/01/14 on his page.




The National Art & Design Courses are very demanding in terms of the amount of work that has to be completed in the time given. To help with time management the Art Department sets internal deadlines as well as adhering to those set by the SQA. In line with school policy we work with parents to help students get the most out of our courses. If homework is late and deadlines are missed we let parents know so pupils, teachers and parents can all manage progress together. The Department has to collect evidence of work completed and the level of that work to make sure that the candidate is keeping good pace and is on target to reach their expected attainment level. SQA need to know the final level for presentation by 31st January 2014 so before that we must have secure evidence on performance. Practical and written work from class, homework and prelim assessment will establish if the candidate has made enough progress to pass the internal elements of the course and to set presentation level. If these internal elements – outlined below – are not complete on time to the appropriate standard the candidate cannot gain an overall award.
