Art and Design A Level at Tollbar Academy
The Art & Design courses are intended to deepen and extend students’ own creative
skills and their understanding of Art & Design practice developing from their GCSE
studies. You will have the opportunity to work in painting, drawing and mixed media,
sculpture, textiles and photography - including digital where appropriate. You will
be encouraged to experiment and be adventurous in expressing your own thoughts,
observations and ideas. Observational drawing is fundamental to Art practice and will
form the keystone for each project. Students should then develop their ideas into more
experimental and possibly abstract outcomes.
You will work to set themes and be expected to explore, using a variety of materials,
analyse and investigate the work of other artists, craft persons and designers to
develop personal final outcomes.
Grade A / B in either GCSE Art or Textiles
