Art & Design A Level at Bishop Ramsey C of E School
Welcome to the Art and Design Department. The examination board whose syllabus we follow is Edexcel.
Our courses provide a varied and stimulating approach to the Visual Arts, involving self-assessment, personal experiences and reactions to specific project assignments. Students are encouraged to visit Art and Design Departments at our local Colleges to see final degree student exhibitions and to look further into the opportunities for higher qualifications and careers.
In recent years we have also run Life Drawing sessions, which have strengthened students' drawing skills and have helped build up portfolios, and trips to IOE Art talks.
Students undertaking this Art, Craft and Design title will be studying the two year linear course following the new EDEXCEL syllabus and will be expected to produce evidence of work chosen from at least two disciplines. They show this in sketchbooks and 2D and 3D outcomes.
Drawing skills from observation are important and will be reflected in coursework.
