Course Description A-Level Art is split into 4 Units over the two years. Our aim is that students gain a broad range of skills and are exposed to a wide range of artists’ work and practices enabling them to become independent self motivated learners capable of making in depth and imaginative art work. Drawing is an essential part of the course and an ability to record from direct observation is very important. Students will be encouraged to use a variety of media and materials and express their individual thoughts, emotions, ideas and observations in visual form. The A- Level Course consists of 4 Units, Units 1 and 2 are taught in Year 12 and Units 3 and 4 in Year 13. Unit 1 Students develop a body of work that focuses developing a wide range of techniques that feed into students’ independent work. (30% of final A-Level mark). Unit 2 Is set by the examining body and it involves a 10 hour supervised exam where the students develop a final piece of work. (20% of final A-Level mark). The A2 Art course consists of a further two units Unit 3 Students develop their own response to a project title, such as “Distortion”. They should continue to refine and experiment in their artistic practice and show their technical and critical understanding in an extended essay. (30% of final A-Level mark). Unit 4 Is set by the examining body and it involves a 15 hour supervised task that shows how the students develop their own ideas for a final piece of work. (20% of final A-Level mark).
