S1/S2 S1 and S2 complete a number of units encouraging drawing skills, colour understanding and media handling. S2 work within the Pottery room/Computer suite for 1hour a week across the year and spend their second hour developing expressive drawing and painting skills. A drawing test normally takes place towards the end of Second year and a written project supplementing critical studies is usually set as an extensive homework task involving researching artists online.
