A Level Art and Design (Fine Art) at Fulford School

Course description

Fine Art is a challenging and rewarding opportunity to explore media,
materials and creativity. It is a personal course which explores students’
skills, ideas and understanding of Fine Art. The coursework unit is taught
through workshop style lessons which allow students to explore their
skills and a range of inspirational artists. Within their coursework they
will complete two projects over the course of several months. There
is an externally set task to which the student must respond and create
a body of work demonstrating theirskills over a timed period. During
the course candidates develop their own ideas based around a given
theme and develop their personal study which explores the students’
own emerging style in the context of other professional practitioners.
One to one support is provided and we pride ourselves on running an
innovative and contemporary course accessible to all young artists.

Entry requirements

- The ability to explain and evaluate your own work and that of other

and to engage with these at every opportunity

Future opportunities

The ability to think creatively, work independently and communicate
thoughts and ideas fluently are all excellent skills to possess. Many
dedicated art students progress onto a Foundation Degree before
progressing further to an Art and Design related degree. Fulford has
many past students who are now pursuing successful careers in the
creative sector, locally, nationally and internationally. To date these include
courses in fashion and graphic design, animatronics, animation, theatre,
costume, jewellery and car design, book illustration and art history.
Former students are also employed as artists and illustrators and are
involved in free-lance art and design teaching and research.
