A Level Fine Art
The Art and Design – Fine Art A level is an exploration of practical and critical/contextual work through a range of 2D and/or 3D processes and mediums. It provides a platform for further study of the arts, a background for other fields of study and develops creative thinking skills. A-Level students visit museums and galleries both locally and nationally to research areas of interest relevant to the development of their ideas. Students will present their work through regular critiques to refine and hone their skills as well as showcase their work in an annual exhibition, which is moderated by an AQA examiner.
Studying Art and Design at A-level equips students with a whole set of transferable skills both for life and for a wide range of vocational areas. A-level Art and Design is perfect for those students wishing to undertake further studies in art, craft and design related subjects. Many students progress onto art related courses, which sometimes involves studying an Art foundation course. This is a one-year full-time course that allows students to explore a range of disciplines before deciding which specialist area they want to study at degree level.
