Art and Design AS/A Level at Bow School

Course description

A-Level Art is a challenging and exciting course that allows students to be expressive and creative. Choosing Art will not only develop your practical skills within the subject, but also develop key transferrable skills, such as working independently and critical thinking. We explore both traditional and contemporary techniques to build a portfolio across each year, including printmaking, painting, sculpture and digital processes. The course provides an ideal platform to pursue career opportunities in design or in the creative and visual arts field. It will also appeal to those students who want to complement their other subjects with creative balance in their studies.
