Art is a language of visual images that everyone must learn to read. In art classes, we make visual images, and we study images. Increasingly, these images affect our needs, our daily behaviour, our hopes, our opinions, and our ultimate ideals. That is why the individual who cannot understand or read images is incompletely educated. In the course you will given to explore different themes in a variety of media and will also be given the opportunity to take part in trips to galleries. The course provides an excellent foundation for any student who wants to move onto a career in the creative industries, such architecture, landscape design, fashion, publishing or interior design.
The course is examined through coursework assignments that are set for you, which count for 60%. The remaining 40 % is through an examination piece, the title of this is chosen form a list provided by the examination board.
