They will be expected to be highly creative thinkers and have a self-motivated approach to their studies.

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 art works to complete a three board portfolio for the external AS ( 14 credits)

The chosen theme will allow for self-reflection and exploration. 

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

The programme will be individually tailored to each student’s talents. Students will complete the standards below or negotiate other alternatives as appropriate.
