Why Study IGCSE Art & Design?
Arts education is in crisis in the UK. Due to the increasing emphasis on core subjects such as English and math, many schools no longer teach arts subjects. In 2018, a major research project conducted by the University of Nottingham revealed that arts and cultural education are beneficial for young people. The research was based on the experiences and voices of thousands of individuals.
Through Cambridge Home School OnlineSchool’s IGCSE Art & Design program, we enable students to perfect their understanding and application of the course through our online homeschooling program. The Cambridge Art & Design syllabus encourages personal response by developing critical thinking and imagination. This unit develops technical skills in two and three-dimensional form and composition. Students learn how to create new ideas from the initial attempts. This course serves as a foundation for further study and helps develop a deeper understanding of the visual arts.
What Sets Us Apart
Cambridge Home School Online prides itself on the many ways we teach Art & Design to our students in a way that helps them understand the core concepts of art and hone their talent through practice and guidance.
We utilise various methods to instil a passion in your child for the arts and ensure that your child isn’t overburdened. Learning Art & Design can be difficult as it is not ordinarily given as much importance as Maths or Physics. Still, Cambridge Home School Online understands how important it is for children to have a firm grasp on this course.
Our resources include audio-visual lectures, case studies, and mock exams that help your child remember correct grammar usage. Our primary areas of focus are divided to tackle the examination, which consists of an 8-hour examination where a final piece of art is produced and a 1500-2000 word essay.
Why Choose Cambridge Home School Online?
We are committed to providing our students with an academically challenging environment as an institution. Through the use of subject specialist teachers with MA/MSc/PhD qualifications, we help our students develop an independent and interdisciplinary approach to learning. We understand that focusing on learning is very important for young students, especially those who tend to fail academically. This is why we use audio-visual elements in our lessons to keep their attention.
Attending To Students' Needs
Teachers fail to understand the learning styles and academic progress of each student due to their lack of individualising their teaching approach. At Cambridge Home School Online, we don’t compromise on quality. Our subject specialists closely monitor each student’s progress and develop a teaching strategy that fits their individual needs. They also plan skill-building activities to help them develop core academic skills. The right teaching approach helps our students excel in class, and we make it a point to develop their academic personalities and learning style.
Balancing Studies and Leisure
At Cambridge Home School Online, we take the necessary steps to ensure that our students have a healthy school-life balance. Through well-structured and focused classes, students aren’t waiting for classes to end so they can go play. Rather, we aim to make classes fun so they can have fun while learning the concepts being taught. This ensures that they can enjoy their time without being overworked. We also encourage students to participate in class so they can clear any confusion actively. For students in IGCSE and A-Levels, this is paramount as the core concepts learned during these years will be used for the rest of their lives.
