Art & Design A-Level at Childwall Sports & Science Academy

Course description

A Level Art and Design furthers your knowledge and understanding within the subject post GCSE. The course is similar in structure to GCSE but allows a lot more personal development, freedom and creativity within the subject.

Students opting to take A-Level Art and Design will study a wide range of techniques and artists during Year 12 and the focus will be on promoting self-development within the subject while also gaining new skills in relation to contextual study and analysis. Students will embark on a selection of projects during AS to enhance these select skills. During A2 the focus will shift to personal study and developing skills to a higher level together with in depth research on your chosen topic. Students will have the opportunity to work with visiting artists and visit museums and galleries as part of the course.

Students will develop drawing, painting, collage, printing, photography, 3D and design skills as part of the Art course at Childwall. This will be driven by both sketchbook study work and large scale pieces.
