A Level Art and Design

Your Unique Experience

This course encourages creativity, sustained investigation and analysis, experimentation, and

design and making as a means of developing technical and expressive skills. It gives learners the opportunity to follow a programme of study which extends experience and personal response as well as developing imagination and critical and reflective thinking. The ability to innovate, adapt and work independently, which underlies all aspects of the course, is valued by higher education and

employers alike

Course Content

Fine Art is traditionally known for painting and drawing. This is a course that gives you the opportunity to discover ways of working in these areas but also includes printmaking, 3D and 2D methods, digital media, mixed media and installation art. From suggested staring points and workshop delivery you will be encouraged to develop as a high level thinker and creative interpreter. Underpinning your work will be the development of vital drawing skills and the appreciation of a broad range of other artists work.

More than just a Course

This course encourages you to be an individual, offering you the opportunity to express and explore your creative ideas. You will be introduced to a variety of media and techniques that will broaden and strengthen your knowledge and understanding of a subject that reaches far beyond the classroom walls. You will develop your own practice as an artist and be encouraged to investigate new ideas and processes. This is a course for a student with a flair, passion and enthusiasm for creativity.
