ART & DESIGN - Fine Art at All Hallows Catholic College
The course commences with a focus on basic skills and techniques and quickly builds to encompass a mixed media approach. Students work mainly in sketchbooks and develop work to a variety of appropriate sizes. Following the Fine Art course allows students to produce work and final outcomes in a variety of materials and forms including Painting, Sculpture, Textiles, Printmaking, Digital Photography, animation and Video.
Students are encouraged to develop an individual and personalised approach to their studies. Progress is monitored and supported through regular tutorials. Students and staff agree challenging targets and areas for development.
Students are encouraged to visit appropriate exhibitions to supplement their studies and the department provides a range of offsite learning opportunities including drawing visits (Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Manchester City Centre) gallery visits (London, Tate Modern, Tate Britain) Students achievements are celebrated in a summer exhibition held at school.
The course is demanding and challenging, however students enjoy studying Art at All Hallows.
