AS/A2 Art and Design at The Boswells School

Course description

This course is intended for those students who have developed a considerable interest and talent in one or more aspects of Art & Design and who

would like to undertake further studies. It is essential that students have an interest in Art and Design and that they are self motivated, committed and prepared to complete work and visit galleries

and sites in their own time. During the course students will experience a range of materials and techniques; recording observations and ideas, analysing and researching and developing to produce final outcomes. The AS course will allow students to develop their skills and explore a range of artists in response to a theme. At A2 students will be expected to develop coursework in response to a theme of their own choosing.

It is expected that students will have studied Art to GCSE level so that the formal elements that underpin Art and Design can be built upon. Students wishing to join the course who have a C grade GCSE in Art or who have not completed a GCSE or equivalent in Art will be expected to produce a portfolio of work.
