Art and Design at Gladesmore Community School
During the course you will have the opportunity to experiment with lots of exciting art techniques like painting, drawing, printing, 3D construction, textiles, photography and use of ICT. You will learn to use these to express your thoughts and feelings and to communicate ideas and meanings. You will develop imaginative powers and explore how other artists, designers, photographers, sculptors, filmmakers and graphic artists have used their creativity to create artwork in a variety of ways. You will make initial drawings by working from observation, imagination and memory. Sometimes the whole class will work on the same activity and sometimes you will control your own learning and direct your investigations yourself to suit your needs. You will be encouraged to experiment with and explore a range of exciting art activities and produce lots of very different and interesting pieces of artwork.
You could take this course to prepare for advanced level courses such as an A/AS Level in Art and Design or you may need to strengthen your grades by completing a foundation or intermediate vocational qualification. With further training, you could go into a job related to art and design such as an Architect, Interior Designer or Art Teacher. You could also go straight into employment and do further training or part time study with the support of your employer.
To find out more about this qualification, contact us, ask your Connexions Personal Adviser or school/college careers staff.
