Art & Design at The Fallibroome Academy

Course description

Students are encouraged to work from observed phenomena, explore design problems, develop ongoing projects, explore different materials and techniques, understand the formal elements of art and present evidence of both primary and secondary source material. The syllabus provides for the necessary breadth and depth of study appropriate to Advanced Level, together with the opportunity for students to explore different disciplines of study relevant to their individual needs through a variety of workshops led by their art teachers. The exploration of artists, cultures and art movements is an integral part of the A Level course and students will be encouraged to explore the work of others at regular stages of their projects. The Coursework Portfolio will reflect an extensive, coherent and integrated course of study. The Controlled Assignments will be set by the exam board, and will be completed in a specific period of time and will be the student’s response to a problem. It will be seen through from inception to a conclusion under controlled conditions.
The Personal Investigation is a critical contextual and historical study related to an aspect of the student’s coursework. The study will give a wider dimension to the coursework and students will be expected to show an appreciation of the multicultural development of people in past and contemporary society.
Topic Examples: Individual artists and their environment Themes such as Structure, Heaven and Earth, Industrial, Food A school or movement of artists such as Impressionism, Abstract Impressionism
Students will be taken on visits to local galleries and will be expected to explore other galleries in their own time. Students are also expected to attend after school sessions in art on a regular basis.
