S4 pupils focus on the Expressive Unit of the Standard Grade course, developing personal work from titles given by the SQA. This will further their media handling skills through still life, portraiture and/or landscape. They will also complete a Critical Essay studying an art movement or artist relating to their work. Pupils are encouraged to work to their strengths, and choose an area to develop for their final SQA examination in May/June. Pupils will sit a prelim exam in November. Essays are submitted in March to the SQA for independent marking.
