Art, A Level

You will have the opportunity to explore exciting traditional and experimental artistic processes and techniques. This covers a wide range of skills including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and 3D, graphics, new media and creative software. You will then be able to specialise in any of these art forms.

You will have the opportunity to visit local and national galleries where you will investigate historical and contemporary artists, taking influence from their disciplines and styles to develop your individual responses for your personal project. You will consider how to build context in your work and how to communicate visual language through application of the formal elements of art and design. You will be expected to produce a large amount of work outside of sessions and to show critical contextual understanding through written, visual and other forms.

How will I be assessed?

In your second year, you will complete coursework (60%) and a controlled assignment (40%).
