A Level Course Art & Design
Students will be encouraged to pursue their own lines of enquiry informed by guided cultural, contemporary and historical references through the 2 years on this linear course. They will explore different types of art in a range of specialisms such as Fine Art, Textiles, Graphics, Photography and Sculpture. This style of work will enable students to produce exciting, creative and innovative pieces. Students will show evidence of trying to extend their own work and others by seeing examples from different cultures and time periods.
