Learners must complete six units of work covering a range of two-dimensional and three-dimensional and/or mixed media approaches.

Learners can achieve Entry Level 1, 2 or 3 in each unit and can gain a qualification at Entry 1, 2 or 3 depending on the overall level of units they achieve. Refer to section 4.7 of the specification for full detail.

 

Unit 1: Two-Dimensional Studies - Conception
This unit gives learners the opportunity to experience a range of approaches by artists, craftspeople or designers using 2D materials, techniques and processes. This enables learners to progress to developing knowledge and skills. Learners will also follow health and safety procedures relevant to the chosen resources and techniques.

Unit 2: Two-Dimensional Studies - Development
This unit builds on learners' experiences and develops their ideas for a 2D final outcome. They further explore 2D techniques, materials and processes. Learners must follow health and safety procedures throughout this unit.

Unit 3: Two-Dimensional Studies - Outcome
This unit gives learners the opportunity to produce one 2D final outcome. To achieve this they will use appropriate visual language, digital media and critical studies processes to inform their choices and final outcome. Learners must follow appropriate health and safety procedures.

Unit 4: Two-Dimensional Studies - Outcome
This unit gives candidates the opportunity to experience a range of approaches by artists, craftspeople or designers using 3D and/or mixed media materials, techniques and processes. This enables learners to progress to developing knowledge and skills. Learners will also cover health and safety procedures relevant to the chosen resources and techniques.

Unit 5: Three-Dimensional and/or Mixed Media Studies - Development
This unit gives learners opportunities to experience and work to develop ideas for a 3D and/or mixed media final outcome. They further explore 3D techniques, materials and processes. Learners must follow health and safety procedures throughout this unit.

Unit 6: Three-Dimensional and/or Mixed Media Studies - Outcome
This unit gives learners the opportunity to produce one 3D and/or mixed media final outcome. To achieve this, learners will use appropriate visual language, digital media and critical studies processes to inform their choices and final outcome. Learners must follow appropriate health and safety procedures.
