Fine Art A Level

Level 3 - Advanced

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.

When studying Fine Art, 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.

This course is principally assessed by coursework (a portfolio of Art work produced through completion of various projects through the two years of the course), with an externally set timed component in Year 2 (similar in structure to GCSE Art).

The course is an excellent starting point for more advanced studies in a variety of creative subjects and can lead to career routes including art, graphic design, fashion design, animation, illustration, product design, advertising and marketing.
