Art A Level

Event: Art A Level

Anglesey

Based on the quaint Menai Straits, our art A Level course aims to raise attainment and allow students the opportunity to work with nationally recognised subject specialists, practicing artists and subject leaders.

Students will be able to choose from a number of disciplines and processes to develop their practical work and subject knowledge in Drawing, Painting, Textile and Three-Dimensional work. Under guidance and direction of practising artists / leading art tutors, students will use both contemporary and traditional techniques to make artefacts and pieces of work.

Desired Outcomes

An opportunity to work alongside nationally recognised subject specialists, practising artists, designers and subject leaders.

A great way to add a significant body of work to the students’ coursework folders, regardless of exam board.

The chance to meet like-mind students and teachers from other schools to mix with other pupils and teachers from other schools.
