This course offers a firm grounding in the discipline, craft and theory of Art and Design. A starting point, either ‘design brief’ or ‘theme’, provides impetus to study and explore a topic in-depth by looking at relevant cultural sources, by trialling different media and techniques and by recording ideas throughout the project. Pupils will gain confidence in their skills and develop a visual language in which to express their ideas.

In the Fine Art endorsement candidates must produce work that shows at least two approaches to Art and Design from the following:

  • Painting
  • Drawing
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture
  • Lens-based imagery
  • Other forms of two-dimensional or three-dimensional imagery
