Art & Design AS/A2 Level at Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College

Course description

Students should possess a high level of personal commitment and are expected to undertake coursework in their own time which complements and runs parallel to studio work. In the introductory project all students will complete a series of workshops focusing exploring a range of different media and processes such as drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography and digital media. Students are encouraged to use formal elements and creative skills to give form to individual observations and ideas.

Analytical skills are developed through the use of work journals and an extended personal study in A2.

The AS leading to an A2 course in Art and Design provides the opportunity to build a strong portfolio of work in 2 and 3 dimensions. This is crucial for those students seeking progression to further study in art and design or employment in creative industries.
