Art & Design (Fine Art) – A level
Fine Art offers you an exciting opportunity to develop your individual creativity through a wide range of challenging experiences. We will support your development of art skills but will challenge you to create work outside your comfort zone. Our purpose built Applegarth Centre has enabled us to widen our provision and we will be encouraging you to express yourself through a variety of media, which will include drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation and video. The centre also houses a wonderful gallery space, which will give us a fantastic opportunity to exhibit your work in a professional setting.
We dare you to think about what Fine Art is and what it can be. You must be prepared to comment on your work and draw links with other artists. It is important to emphasise that, if you spend as much time working outside of lessons as you do within them, then you will flourish as a student in Fine Art.
Like every other A level programme, Fine Art is an academic qualification and, as such, is useful for progression into higher education. Fine Art students progress to a whole range of careers including artist, teacher, architect, art historian and art critic among many, many others.
