Art & Design – Printmaking (assessed for Entry 2) Example task: Make a print in the style of your favourite artist.
AC1.1 Select references and resources to support printmaking work. AC1.2 Respond to observations and experiences relating to a task or theme. AC1.3 Make references to the work of artists, craftspersons and / or designers. The pupil has selected a limited number of references to support their work. Observational drawing and written comments provide some evidence of a personal response from the pupil. Only one visual reference to the work of artists, with some basic aspects of the artist's style evident in the final outcomes.
AC2.1 Use materials, tools and techniques appropriate to printmaking. AC2.2 Use visual elements in practical work, such as: colour; pattern; texture; line; shape; form; space; tone. Line, colour and shape in particular, lend themselves to this task and in view of the reference to the work of Andy Warhol and subsequent outcomes, colour would be especially important. More emphasis on this particular element throughout the unit of work would benefit outcomes. The pupil has used a number of painting and drawing techniques. However, apart from the final outcomes, where two different printmaking processes have been used, there is no evidence of experimentation with printmaking materials, tools and techniques.
AC2.3 Develop ideas for a printmaking outcome. There is some evidence of the process of selection taking place, however no real indication of where the final Images for the prints come from. Development could also have included different colour ways, which would have linked well to the initial Andy Warhol reference 'Marilyn'.
AC3.1 Produce an outcome in response to a task or theme using printmaking processes. AC3.2 Present a printmaking outcome. The pupil has successfully completed two printmaking outcomes, a multi-coloured polystyrene press print and a linocut which has been repeated. They both demonstrate a response to the initial task.
General Comments The two printmaking outcomes are successful. However, evidence for a number of the AC's is thin and in the case of AC1.3 and AC2.3 very limited. The main problem is the lack of experimentation with printmaking materials, tools and techniques throughout the unit of work.
Art & Design – PRINTMAKING (Assessed for Entry 3) Example task: Produce a repeat print based on your studies of an artist.
AC1.1 Select a range of references and resources to support printmaking activities. AC1.2 Produce visual and / or tactile records of observations and experiences relating to a task or theme. The pupil has selected appropriate references and resources, however, this area would have benefited from a wider range of initial references. The pupil has used cut and paste to recreate an Escher repeat pattern. There is also evidence of observational drawing to record experiences as well as written comments.
AC1.3 Identify the influence of artists, craftspersons and / or designers on their own practice. The final design relates clearly to the influence of M. C. Escher's repeat designs.
AC2.1 Select and handle materials, tools and techniques appropriate to practical printmaking. AC2.2 Use visual elements in practical work, such as: colour; pattern; texture; line; shape; form; space; tone. AC2.3 Develop ideas for a printmaking Outcome, modifying work as needed. This is an AC that needs attention as there is no evidence of printmaking materials, tools and techniques being used in the development of ideas. The visual elements of line, colour, shape and pattern, which are most appropriate for this particular task, are well covered. Ideas have been developed in graphic form, but not using printmaking techniques. Little, if any modification of the original idea has taken place.
AC3.1 Use printmaking processes to produce an outcome in response to a task or theme. AC3.2 Present a resolved printmaking outcome, with some consideration of refinement. The pupil has produced a Printmaking outcome, however, there is a lack of real understanding of printmaking materials, tools and techniques (see AC2.1) As a result, the outcome lacks refinement and is unresolved.
General Comments In order to achieve an Entry 3 this pupil would have to show evidence that they were able to handle materials, tools and techniques appropriate to printmaking both in the development and final outcome. AC2.1, AC2.2 and AC2.3 all relate to the development of ideas, and the amplification of content within the specification says: “Although other materials, tools and techniques will be used during the course, particularly during research, the emphasis should be on printmaking processes”. Clearly that is not the case with this unit of work.
