outcomes for it. They develop original solutions by researching, drawing and
producing finished work that shows extensive knowledge of recent design
practice. Students will use computers to design for their personalised projects
and learn how to use the adobe creative suite programs – Illustrator, Photoshop

without will require additional use of school computers, outside of allocated class
