GCSE Art

In Dalriada we are very flexible in our approach to topic areas for our GCSE pupils. We have a few set projects that we cover (e.g. Graphic Design and Ceramics) but beyond that we encourage our pupils to explore the topics and techniques that interest them. This makes the Art department a very bustling and busy place but it lets our pupils really develop as individuals.

We currently offer CCEA’s Art and Design specification and the units are as follows:
