This is a practical and creative one-year course where you will look at the work of a variety of artists and take inspiration from them to create your own art.

This course will develop your practical skills, your critical knowledge and make you a more confident artist. You will explore different themes and a variety of materials and processes (drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, sculpture and textiles). You are assessed on your ability to develop ideas, experiment with practical materials, record ideas and present successful outcomes.

There is a practical coursework unit and a practical examination. Most materials you need will be provided in the studio but there is a charge for these. Students need to be committed to spending time on art, as there will be weekly independent study tasks. Students who do well can progress to A Level Art, Textiles, 3D Design, Graphic Design or Photography.
