Students attend lectures and workshops where they will be introduced to a variety of experiences that explore a range of fine art media, processes and techniques. They will be made aware of both traditional and new media. Students will use sketchbooks/ workbooks to underpin their work. They will explore artefacts and resources relating to a range of art, craft and design, from the past and recent times.
Areas of study include:
Drawing and painting
Students gain an understanding of the conventions of figurative/ representational and abstract/ nonrepresentational imagery. Students will show they have a knowledge of how ideas feelings and meanings can be conveyed and interpreted in images of fine art.
Students are able to go onto Foundation Art and Design Courses and Degree Courses at university. From university students go onto careers such as, fashion, textiles, theatre design, graphic design, illustration animation and multimedia.
In the past it has been highly useful to students wanting to start up their own business, enter private practice in dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary science, engineering and architecture as well as the more obvious careers in finance, marketing and management.
Students require a Grade 4 or above in GCSE Art and Design and should have a genuine enthusiasm for the subject.
