Year 9

Y9 Graphics is part of the Art and Design Suite. Students will continue to build on the technical specialisms of Art and Design across the three subjects of Fine Art, Graphics and Textiles. Students will learn about the importance of research and the presentation of sketchbook study sheets alongside the need for a strong technical skill. 

Year 9 Graphics is designed to give students the chance to develop and extend their creative and technological abilities, whilst showing them the type of work that ‘real-life’ Graphic Designers do. This course is a very practical and creative course, and builds on the graphics skills and knowledge gained throughout Year 7 and 8. The Y9 Footwear Project covers Advertising, Branding and Logo Design, and the Movie, Game or Book Relaunch Covers Illustration and Packaging Design.
