Art is for students who are genuinely interested in working in 2 and 3 dimensional materials. The A Level course offers an innovative approach to fine art that will stimulate your curiosity, knowledge and extend your individual skills in visual language.
The course provides students with a broad experience and an opportunity to develop drawing, painting, sculptural, ceramic, photography and digital skills. The course encourages students to take an experimental approach with materials to develop a good understanding of the creative process. Students will also investigate the work of artists to develop critical thinking and to inform personal project development.
A minimum of five GCSEs, two at grade 6 and three at grade 4. GCSE English at grade 4, grade 5 at GCSE Art or a Distinction in BTEC Art & Design. Outstanding students without these subjects, but with a good portfolio of art work and a background in subjects such as Graphic Communication or Textiles, may be considered.
This course is a great starting point for students wishing to embark on a Foundation Course, a University Course, a Vocational Course or employment within the Art & Design field. During the course, students will develop desirable transferrable skills that will enable them to create a professional portfolio providing a pathway to whichever journey they choose after their studies here.
