Art at The Regis School

Course description

At the Regis School we offer a versatile Visual Arts course that allows
students to develop a diverse and creative portfolio in Ceramics, Textile Art and Fine Art. You will have the opportunity to experiment with materials,refine processes and create dynamic outcomes. This will enable you to continue to expand on prior learning, building upon your technical and practical knowledge of drawing; colour; material explorations and resolving outcomes and pushing your risk taking skills.

Course content

You will be given a theme as a starting point such as ‘Metamorphosis’ or ‘Dialogue’, where you will analyse and respond to the work of artists. The course is very broad and allows you to expand your thinking alongside your practical explorations as you develop your use of visual communication. You’ll explore a range of media and applications, experiencing both two and three dimensions.

You will be able to express your ideas through the following: Drawing, Ceramics, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Mixed Media and Film. You will develop your preparatory studies in to a final outcome, accompanied by a written evaluation. There will also be an opportunity to visit local and London Galleries. Students will be expected to visit galleries and museums as part of their independent learning.

Entry requirements

At least a C grade in Art. If you have not taken art for a GCSE you will have to show a portfolio of personal work to prove that you can meet the requirements for the course.


Component 1: Personal Investigation

Students are required to produce a personal investigation based on personal starting points, devised by you in consultation with your teachers. Personal investigation should include both supporting studies and personal outcome(s).

Component 2: Externally Set Assignment

The externally set assignment (ESA) paper, which contains a broad-based theme with supporting visual and written stimuli will be released each year on 1 January.
