Art or Photography
Art or Photography A Level
The course delivers a broad based Fine Art or Design curriculum, with clear emphasis on experimentation and development of skills. The course will challenge students to further explore their practice, while challenging pre-conceived ideas. Through looking at the work of others you will gain an understanding of the value of art and design as well as through your own personal journey. You will complete the work with a Portfolio of work that will assist you in your applications for Universities or Colleges.
