Art, Craft and Design A Level at The Petchey Academy

Course description

The A Level course is an exciting, challenging and thoroughly engaging course at The Petchey Academy. In the last two years, all students have achieved a C grade or higher – and continue to work to this high standard at the moment.

Year 12 breaks down Art and builds you up to be a confident, creative and expressive artist. The course weaves together a diverse range of skills from painting and printing, through to textiles and 3D sculpture – with an exhibition at the end of both AS and A Level courses. In Year 13, you will independently explore themes and topics that motivate, inspire and challenge you ensuring you are working to a high standard throughout the two-year course.

Students gain 5 hours of study time with different Art teachers, benefiting from their unique artistic expertise. Sketchbook work is required on a weekly basis and is estimated to take roughly 5 hours outside of lessons to complete – but you have access to the UG Art Room throughout the day, with access to the materials too

Entry requirements

For AS/ A Level Art: A*-B grade minimum in a creative subject such as Art & Design, Textiles of Design & Technology at GCSE level.

Future opportunities

An A Level in Art, Craft and Design provides the foundations of a creative career. Everything from advertising and game-design to film and television production all benefit from creative and imaginative minds. Many artists choose to pursue Art as a hobby and continue to make a considerable amount alongside their full-time occupation, while others constantly turn to their expressive side to demonstrate their own vision for a business. Illustrators and architects all require an Art A-Level.
