Year 12 Fine Art Mock Exam: Truth, Fantasy or Fiction
Truth, Fantasy or Fiction is the title for the AS Fine Art mock exam project. You will have until the end of June to develop your ideas through preparatory studies before spending a day in the Art department realising your final outcome as part of the controlled assessment. You should aim to be ambitious in your final outcome and presentation.
Make sure that you annotate each task:
- What was the intention?
- How does it link to the theme?
- How well did you meet the brief?
- Connection to a relevant artist.
- WWW, EBI, potential ways forward
Once you have completed all the set tasks you need to consider three starting points for your own response to the theme. Each idea must be supported by a link to an artist and your own drawings. Look through the power point, the exam paper and also the links below to help you. Having said this, you can choose to build on any of the processes and themes visited during the set tasks above.
Many Art teachers and Art students have created their own Pinterest 'boards' in response to this theme. Click on the screen grab below to have a look.....
Ensure that you have satisfied the following Assessment Objectives tasks by the end of the project:
AO1 - DEVELOP
Make sure all set tasks are completed. By the end of the project, we would like you to have analysed three images by artists relevant to your ideas using the Form, Process, Content structure. A good response does not mean an exact copy.
AO2 - EXPERIMENT
In order to show a good range of experimentation, start by taking 3 sets of different observations in response to 3 ideas based on your research. It is important to show refinement of ideas and techniques throughout the project. Make sure annotation considers subject, concept, approach, technique, formal elements etc as appropriate.
AO3 - RECORD
Remember that we are looking for a good technical and compositional understanding in your work, along with a clear explanation of ideas. This is where you can gain marks for your control of media. You can also gain marks for research and collecting of resources however, only collect what you need to move on practically.
AO4 - REALISE
Develop and refine your best ideas further working towards an exhibition outcome, which will be completed during your examination period (12-hours) at the beginning of the Summer Term.
Here is a good example of an AS sketchbook that achieved full marks last year. Whilst there are a number of pieces that could be described as naive, the perseverance, quantity and quality of where she ends up delivers a highly successful project. Please observe:
