Art and Design - Fine Art
This course encourages students to experience, explore and enjoy the many aspects of art through stimulating and exciting coursework. A wide range of technical and manipulative skills will be developed through observation and analysis of the visual world, experimentation with media, techniques and processes and the production of individual, creative outcomes.
Students will explore relevant images, artefacts and resources relating to a range of fine art, both contemporary and from the past. A variety of responses will be produced during the two years, including drawing, painting, printmaking, 3D-sculpture/construction, clay work, mosaic and collage.
Visits to exhibitions and galleries form an important part of the course and students are encouraged to support their work with the use of photography and information technology (digital imagery, internet research).
