Art and Design at Sprowston Community High School

Course description

In AS Art, you are set a wide ranging theme and have the opportunity to work with many exciting different materials and techniques including: drawing, painting, photography, printing, sculpture, textiles and mixed media. We work in a relaxed but structured studio environment treating you as individual artists. Work ranges from observational drawing to expressive experimentation. In lessons, we will teach you specific Art skills while at the same time encouraging you to develop your creative side and enthusiasm for art. You will develop your skills and investigations further in A2 where you have the opportunity to design your own project, choosing your own theme and techniques.

There are specific Sixth Form Art study areas where you can work in your study periods and use materials and equipment in an art specific place. It is possible to specialise within the Art curriculum and take an endorsed Textiles A Level which develops creative skills, techniques and processes in textiles. This would complement the Technology Textiles A Level or allow students to begin specialising in this field from a Fine Art background.

Entry requirements

To study A Level courses you will need to have achieved at least 5 GCSE Grades A*-C in full courses including either English or Maths. C grade or higher in GCSE Art or BTEC equivalent C grade in GCSE English preferable
