Art and Design at Ormiston Victory Academy

Course description

A-level Art is an opportunity to develop the creative processes learnt at GCSE. It is about having an adventurous and enquiring approach to Art and developing the skills to express it. You will develop an understanding of past and contemporary art and design and be able to produce personal responses embracing a range of ideas and techniques. You will develop the skills to investigate, analyse and experiment using art, craft and design.

You begin with an initial intensive induction to the course to equip you with the skills and concepts to embark on a personal assignment. You then build on the learning from this stage to develop your own personal response to the assignment theme. This body of coursework is worth 60%. The exam will be issued after Christmas and you will build up a body of preparatory work based on a set theme which will culminate in an eight-hour exam worth 40%.
