Fine Art at Maiden Erlegh School
This deals with art for its own sake and involves studying artists’ work and the ideas and concepts behind it. The messages, which may be implied or conveyed in the work, might deal with issues about society today. Traditional examples of Fine Art include painting from the figure, the portrait, still life, abstraction, architecture and landscape. Understanding of pictorial space and the elements of composition form an important part of the study. Media and techniques to be explored will include: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, film, and installation. Written analysis of the work of other artists, both contemporary and of the past, is essential as are visits to major galleries and museums.
A GCSE pass in Art and Design at a C grade or above is needed to take an AS course. Students who have not studied Art at GCSE will be asked to present a portfolio of work which will be used to assess their ability to pursue an AS course.
