Art and Design at Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form Free School

Course description

A Level Art and Design provides students with opportunities to develop personal responses to ideas, observations, experiences, environments and cultures in practical, critical and contextual forms. This four-unit specification, two at AS level and two at A2, requires students to develop their ability to show a range of skills. These include: independence of mind in developing their own ideas; an interest and enthusiasm for art and design; the experience of working with a range of media, including traditional and new media and technologies and an awareness of different roles, functions, audiences and consumers of art and design practice.

Candidates will produce practical and critical/contextual work associated with two or more of these endorsements: fine art, graphic communication, three dimensional design, photography. This course is particularly suitable for students who wish to study Art and Design or related subjects at a higher level or who wish to pursue a career in the Arts.
