A group of talented art pupils at Rydal Penrhos have been praised for their efforts during a recent mock examination.
The GCSE candidates spent the day on Thursday, February 21 going through the exact exam process they will participate in at the end of term, giving them some vital experience in things such as time management and preparation methods.
The pupils worked hard on making pieces outside of their sketchbooks based on their responses to the exam paper, which they received after the Christmas break.
The morning was spent drawing on canvas and preparing before the painting and other activities began.
This produced some fantastic work involving prints, models and paintings from the group, who will now go through the final stages of planning before the real thing, which takes place over a two-day period.
Head of Art Mark Sherrington, said: “By going through this mock process the pupils get a genuine sense of what the real exam will be like at the end of term.
“It also enables their project to move on and give them chance to “review and refine” their work which is part of the marking criteria.
“All the pupils produced work that was sustained and considerably better than work up to this point and it gives us chance to really push the ideas and techniques in the last stages of their module.”
