Fine Art at The Castle School

Course description

Fine Art is well suited to students who enjoyed Art at GCSE and would like to experiment with different design materials and learn a wide range of image making skills, media, processes and techniques. Students seeking to go further in their study of Art often complete a one-year Art Foundation course at a local Further Education institution before applying for a university degree course.

Art is a practical but intellectually stimulating subject aimed at developing creative confidence and expression. Students work from their strengths and interests and are guided through learning new skills to ensure they achieve their best. Learning in lessons and independent research will help develop their personal responses to a wide variety of ideas, observations, experiences, environments and cultures. The AS is 100% practical coursework, whereas the A2 course includes a short, written personal investigation and a practical examination.

Entry requirements

Minimum grade C in GCSE Art or Art & Design.
