Art and Design (Fine Art) AS/A2 at Notley High School and Braintree sixth form

Course description

Students following this course will be introduced to a wide range of art practices and concepts through practical work in the studio and research into the work of other artists.  There will be a structured and progressive approach to the exploration of materials and equipment including drawing, 3D work in clay & other materials, printmaking, painting and the use of digital media.  Visits will be made to art galleries, museums and other places of visual interest.  Students are encouraged to work independently and to develop an understanding of how their work relates to the history of both art and ideas.  Students develop practical art skills which allow them to creatively explore and respond to their personal experience through their artwork.

Entry requirements

If GCSE Art/Textiles or Graphics has been taken a grade B is required.  Admission to the course is conditional upon production of a portfolio of work that demonstrates an appropriate level of skill and commitment.
