Fine Art A Level at Knole Academy

Course description

Description: Fine Art enables students to appreciate the visual world and develop the ability to respond in a personal and creative way. Students will develop skills including a working knowledge of materials, practices and technology; the ability to interpret and convey ideas and feelings using art, craft and design; imaginative and creative powers and experimental, analytical and documenting skills; specialist language and a knowledge of the place of art in contemporary society.

The course has been designed to give students the opportunity to adopt an individual approach to their work. A sketchbook must be kept throughout the course, which is both a journal of their progress and a means of documenting evidence of a student’s work in relation to the assessment objectives. 

The course will prepare candidates to progress into further or higher education, to follow courses in a broad range of Art based subjects.
