Art Graphics at St Aidan's and St John Fisher's Associated Sixth Form

Course description

Art Graphics students need to be well motivated and capable of working independently to a given brief. Taking the initiative and developing a personal response is central to the course. This can be achieved through the use of a wide range of media including Illustration, Photoshop, Animation, Photography and a range of available software.

Students will learn about key features in interpreting a Design brief, communicating a visual message succinctly and refining imagery to its final outcome. Access to an A0 printer, allows for the production of professional quality posters, banners and other imagery.

The department has connections with commercial Graphic Designers who provide inspirational advice and support. This allows students to understand how to interpret a given brief presented by the client as well as working under the pressure of deadlines.
