This course is an opportunity to extend your skill base in visual art. You may have enjoyed success in a certain area, be it drawing, painting or 3D. All is about to change. AS level is about pushing you into new ways of looking, thinking and creating artwork beyond what you thought you were capable of. If you can create personal and original artwork from a starting point or idea, you may well have the edge over other people in interviews for potential jobs and careers.
