More course information

A-Level Art and Design offers students opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of visual problem solving skills through personalised learning, which is underpinned by artist research and analysis. Students will have the opportunity to experiment with a wide range of materials and are encouraged to take risks with their work. The course follows a rigid structure that will ensure all the assessment objectives are met, but is designed to allow each individual to flourish by producing rich, meaningful and exciting outcomes that will push their creative thinking skills.

Sketchbooks are crucial in succeeding, and will provide evidence of a student's ability to address the four assessment objectives outlined below:

Develop ideas through sustained and focused investigations informed by contextual and other sources, demonstrating analytical and critical understanding.

Experiment with and select appropriate resources, media, materials, techniques and processes, reviewing and refining ideas as work develops.

Record in visual and/or other forms, ideas, observations and insights relevant to intentions, demonstrating an ability to reflect on work and progress.

Present a personal, informed and meaningful response demonstrating critical understanding, realising intentions and, where appropriate, making connections between visual, oral or other elements.
