Fine Art A Level

The Fine Art A Level involves a combination of practical manipulation of art media and materials with the expression of ideas and concepts. It demands a high level of commitment and independent effort. You will spend time learning and improving your drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media skills and applying them to set projects. Fine Art involves making a practical and personal response to a subject and linking it to the work of other artists. Throughout the course you will be required to write annotations and evaluations to support the development of your practical artwork.
