Art and Design AS/A Level at The Commonweal School

Course description

Do you want a career you love in the Creative Industries? Have you thought about a future as an artist, designer, photographer, curator, teacher or architect? This A-level course is aimed at students with an ambition to succeed and a love of Art.

Did you know 9% of all jobs in the UK are currently in the creative sector? The Creative Industries are a growing sector of the jobs market, despite the current recession. If you feel you are a creative person, enjoy working practically through sculpture, painting and or illustration, using your creative brain imaginatively and to making links to artists (and the wider world) then Art is for you.

At this stage you should have a passion for and love of the subject. This, however, does not mean you can only study Art if you are striving to be a life-long artist, but you do require dedication, enthusiasm for the subject. Art is a highly enjoyable, personal and motivating subject, in which you can grow artistically and personally.
