Art and Design

From Free

• Art in the Sixth Form is an extension of methods and practices developed at GCSE. We offer a general, broad-based course in the belief that flexibility and breadth of experience is important. • Projects can involve painting, drawing, 3D work, photography, graphics, textiles or any combination of these. Students are advised to keep a broad base and specialise if they wish later, although those with a strength in particular areas can opt to build a course around this. • The AS Level in Year 12 can be taken on its own or as a preliminary step to progressing to the full A Level in Year 13. • Projects will have a framework of teacher inputs, technical guidance and working methods, but will encourage students to identify, analyse and explore their own ideas. • Contextual studies of artists and aspects of Art History will be integrated into the course along with annual gallery visits. • Coursework units are not fixed in terms of content and will change from year to year. • Controlled tests are produced in response to ‘starting points’ set by the exam board.
