Level 3 Art Design

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss S. Belcher

Skills learnt over L1 & L2 will be extended and refined to be able to apply to a personally selected theme, chosen after research on a range of genres.

The personal approach to this course relies on the student being motivated and it is essential that studies are continued out of classroom time, in order to create designs/Illustrations to complete a three board portfolio for the external AS (14 credits).

The chosen theme will allow for self-reflection and exploration. Generating, analysing, clarifying and regeneration of works will form the main body of work over year.

This course prepares students for tertiary study and some of the work created can be used for entrance applications.
