No formal entry qualifications are required for Level 2 courses. This course would also work well being studied alongside Graphics, Photography, Textiles or Ceramics.
In this one-year GCSE course, you will study a range of artists, use a variety of art materials and develop ideas creatively. Projects will include references to first hand sources and by the end of the project you will have brought all your ideas together creatively. Work is mounted up and annotated to explain all your ideas. Basic art materials will be required for you to use at home. You will complete a minimum of two coursework units, and then the final art exam is a practical project which you have a few weeks to prepare for, and then create the final piece/s under exam conditions in the Art room for ten hours.
Everything you wear or see has had a designer or artist involved somewhere. Many of the people who have created this have gone through an Art and Design route in Further Education and Higher Education such as Graphic Designer, Exhibition Designer, Fine Artist or Teacher.
