Course overview

By choosing to study A Level Fine Art you are taking the first exciting step towards a career in the creative industries, which contributes £84.1bn to the UK economy!

Through the two years on this linear course, you will be encouraged to develop a sense of enquiry, an ability to take practical and intellectual risks and make considered decisions by exploring contemporary and historical references. You will show evidence of trying to extend your own work and others by exploring examples from different cultures and time periods and presenting their findings as a portfolio of work.
