Art, Design and Technology



Course Content:

Art & Design and Technology is a fundamental part of education and the curriculum at Harris Academy Wimbledon.

It is a means to communicate and respond to the world around us, as well as, designing and making the world beautiful. Art allows students to develop both personal and employability skills in creative thinking, problem-solving, independence, organisation, and critical thinking skills such as complex analysis, self-discipline and fine-motor skills. At HAWI, we teach the core values as well as the enjoyment for our subject, through a range of varied projects and different cultural references and starting points.

In year 7 students are introduced to a wide range of different processes, techniques and media in order to support students in expressing themselves, including drawing, painting, print-making, collage, and digital photography.  Students are taught early on how to successfully observe and be influenced by surroundings as well as work with drive both independently and collaboratively.


Units Covered:

  1. Fundamentals of drawing
  2. Kandinsky – cross curricular link with Music
  3. Graphics and working to a brief



  1. Photography
  2. Fauvism
  3. Illustration in the city


Course Books/ Websites:

Pinterest;; YouTube

Take the time to watch Austin’s Butterfly on YouTube – a beautiful story of how students can work together and over time make progress, no matter what their starting point is.


Additional Materials/ Equipment Required:

Shading pencils at home, the minimum needed is a sketching pencil and a 4B shading pencil. Watercolours may be of use at home.



Home Support:

Encourage your son/ daughter to draw regularly through observation, whether it be from primary observation with the object in front of them, or secondary observation, from a 2D picture. Drawing skill is looked at closely at GCSE level which is why fundamentals of how to draw, as well as learning how critical feedback can help the student to improve each time, will alleviate this pressure later on in GCSE art. Should your son/ daughter have access to a camera (even on a phone), the practice of recording and encouraging the love of the subject should be encouraged, especially at each new place they visit.
