Through investigating the work of artists and designers this course will strengthen your grasp of the visual language you can use to express yourself. You will experiment with a wide range of media and techniques to enhance your practical skills. You’ll develop personal responses to broad themes, always working from relevant visual sources. You’ll test a series of ideas before producing a well-considered outcome.
What are the entry requirements?
To study art and design at this level, in addition to the general entry requirements, you need a grade 6 or better in GCSE art and design (any endorsement). A grade 5 will be considered on an individual basis. However, a GCSE in Textiles is no longer a suitable preparation for this linear qualification.
What opportunities will this lead to?
After completion of A Level Art & Design many go on to study Foundation in Art and then onto university or art college. We have had students go to top universities across the country, from the Glasgow School of Art to Central Saint Martins. Career opportunities include a variety of roles within the creative industries.
