Course description

Students will be expected to have developed skills and have a range of media, through the successful completion of GCSE Art. They need to have an enthusiasm for the subject and a genuine desire to extend their understanding, knowledge and skills. Students will develop the skills to interpret and convey ideas and feelings about art, craft and design, alongside a working knowledge of materials, techniques and documentary skills. Students will also develop a specialist vocabulary and some knowledge and understanding of the place of art in history, different cultures and contemporary society.

Students should have an interest in creating and understanding art and the determination to develop that interest. AS?A Level Art is not an easy option and students should be prepared to commit the necessary time and apply themselves positively to developing their abilities.
