Art - Fine Art A Level

Level A-level


What will I study?

Our grade one outstanding course is broad and experimental in approach and includes drawing and painting, printmaking, mixed media and 3D work. We help you to develop a personal pathway with the skills and knowledge to produce creative individual and high quality artwork. We encourage you to be inventive, independent and involved.

Is this course right for me?

Are you ambitious, motivated and creative? This course is a practical making/creating course which uses a vast range of specialist materials and art techniques, it is 60% practical portfolio and 40% practical exam. Our Practical Portfolio component is supported by a 3000 word contextual/personal study essay and exam unit. The first year builds knowledge, understanding and skills through working on themes: the second year becomes more focused on you and the development of your personal ideas.

Where next?

We have a supportive and structured Visual Arts career progression program to help you with your next steps into HE/FE courses. Students progress onto careers in the creative industries such as architecture, illustration, product design, web design, fashion design, photo journalism and commercial photography, film and animation.
