Art at Burntwood School
Both AS and A2 available via EDEXCEL
It is an exciting and popular course where students explore a range of materials in a variety of media such as painting, printing, sculpture and mixed media.
Students will be expected to work from direct observation (life drawing, still life, environment) and look at the work of a variety of artists as starting points for developing personal and creative responses, taking advantage of the galleries and museums based in London.
The course has workshop links with local Art schools and offers further opportunties such as a Drawing Award (UAL) course, practical workshops and portfolio reviews.
Recommended that students have achieved a B grade at Art GCSE. A good standard of literacy is also recommended.
The AS/A2 Fine Art programme is made up of an AS level consisting of one unit of coursework and one exam unit over the first year followed by the A2 level with a further coursework and exam unit in the second year
Many of our students go on to study Art at Foundation and Degree level - e.g. Wimbledon School of Art, Camberwell College of Art, Chelsea College of Art, London College of Fashion, London College of Printing, Royal Academy, London College of Communication and St. Martins.
Career opportunities range from Fashion Design, Architecture, Interior Design, Prop Making, and so on.
