Art A Level at Rivers Academy West London

Course description

All students have four lessons per week and are also encouraged to work within the department during independent study. During Y12 students are taught to further develop their skills and explore their own artistic identity. Initially all students are guided through workshops which focus on key skills such as recording, developing ideas, researching, experimenting with materials and review. As the students’ progress they are given more freedom to select their own focus. By the second year of the A-Level course students should be working in partnership with their teachers to develop their final project work.
