Help needed with new A-Level 3D Art course!

    Hello! I'm about to change our product design course to the AQA 3D art course at A-level due to staffing changes and specialisms, and I am looking to make links with someone that might be able to help me a little!

    We have taught the AQA Fine Art and Photography courses, so familiar with the structure, just struggling to find any visual examples of projects. Specifically, I'm looking for coursework/exam examples, maybe an A,B,C grade... so if anyone is able and willing to send me some photographs of a few students work, I'd really appreciate it. Also if possible to send some SOW, that would be handy too.

    More than happy to exchange resources to return the favour :)

    Hi yes no problem! I only offer the 2 year A-level course - this is my structure:
    • start of year 12 - 6 week skills development through mini tasks
    • a practice project up until the end of January to go through the full process of a project and meet all AOs - I give them the title 'Journeys' and structure it fairly tightly for them with mini tasks within it eg. being followed, movement, pathways, time and change.
    • students then write an accompanying essay 1000-3000 words to practice for the first component of the A2 course.
    • February-January - personal investigation. students choose their starting point from a previous exam paper. I give them a deadline of the summer holidays for a half way outcome at the end of year 12, then students go back to build on the project for the next term.
    • January in year 13 - students finish their project and write their accompanying essay.
    • February in year 13 - students receive their exam paper for component 2, and do their exam in the first week of May.
    Hope this helps!
