Art AS and A Level *Fees Payable* at Cheltenham College
Our aims are to: develop the interests and skills of the individual, to ensure that by the time a pupil leaves he or she is well versed in art historical knowledge, has life-long skills in drawing and painting, can think independently and understand how to communicate and express their own ideas through use of materials and language as a vital part of their personal development.
Art at Cheltenham College is a lively, diverse, exciting & stimulating place for all. The Art department encourages work to be produced in a vast range of media, with IT provision that includes six Apple Macs, an A3 laser colour printer, a large flatscreen TV in ‘The White Gallery’ and full networking facilities.
Please ensure that you understand that course fees will be payable before submitting your application.
'The White Gallery' is a new exhibition area and interactive space created by Juliet Wallace-Mason, the Head of Department. It is a multi-functional space, constantly changing, but the underlying theme of many of the exhibitions is to encourage our students to create work inspired by the artists that exhibit here, so that they have the chance to exhibit their responses along-side the professionals.
There are daily Art Clinics which are run each weekday morning from 7.30-8.30am. After school activities are also run daily for all exam students from Fourth Form - Upper Sixth sessions.
Art Scholars have a weekly evening workshop in order to extend and challenge their practices, and to prepare them to enter their additional artworks in our exhibitions. Our Sixth Form students are also able to join in with weekly ‘Life Drawing’ classes.
Much time is spent in one-to-one tutoring to develop individual programmes of work suited to the skills of each pupil. We also set great store by the use of free time where the most ambitious work takes place.
