Art - (Fine Art) A Level Block C at Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre

Course description

AS: You will cover a full range of art techniques using a variety of materials and developing your ideas creatively. Learning through the investigation of artists and researching extensively will result in the development of an individual approach and style. Final art pieces are produced on an individual basis. Developmental work and the ability to annotate the progressive stages of the work will be essential. The final exam consists of preparation work and a final piece(s) created in ten hours under exam conditions.

A2: The second year of the course is a natural progression into a detailed body of coursework that continues to link art in context, explore materials and techniques and develop your own creative ideas. A personal investigation (1000 to 3000 words) will allow for an in-depth study into the contextualisation of your project. The final exam project consists of preparation work and a final piece(s) created in 15 hours under exam conditions.

To achieve the full A Level under the new regulations you will need to take all of the assessed units together at the end of the second year of the course, including a repeat of those taken at the end of Year 12.
