The WJEC GCSE in Art and Design is designed to provide engaging, challenging, coherent and meaningful learning experiences through a flexible structure that supports the sequential and incremental development of creative practice.

This rewarding and immersive programme of study broadens experience, develops imagination and technical skills, fosters creativity and promotes personal and social development.

The focus of the specification is to nurture an enthusiasm for Art, Craft and Design and, through a broad introductory foundation programme, to develop critical, practical and theoretical skills that enable students to gain a holistic understanding of a range of practices and contexts in the visual arts, crafts and design fields.

This linear specification provides the flexibility and capacity to build and extend the breadth and depth of student’s creative practice and offers the choice of a broad-based general course, plus seven distinct title options:

 Art, Craft and Design

 Fine Art

 Graphic Communication

 Textile Design

 Three-Dimensional Design
