Art at Hagley Catholic High School

Course description

Students will learn techniques and develop existing skills both with the support of their teachers and independently. It will be important for students to use the Art facilities outside of timetabled lessons to develop work and ideas further. Throughout the A-level course, students will need to visit exhibitions and galleries to extend their knowledge of the work of others and develop ideas and inspiration. Students will also receive the opportunity to either work with practising artists or visit exhibitions organised by the department. Teachers will support students’ development of their work through group discussions and individual tutorials.
