Art

Transition materials for Y11 going into Y12


WHAT IS ART AND DESIGN?
This exciting course covers all the core elements of Art and Design and is designed to allow you to develop your artistic skills and gain confidence.

The course is flexible and offers students the freedom to explore and work across the broad spectrum of art disciplines.

WHY STUDY ART AND DESIGN?
Studying Art is to work successfully to find, analyse and communicate information; to translate ideas, the written word and your imagination into imagery with an increasingly complex system of seemingly unrelated parts to form a personal conclusion for others to appreciate.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
To study at Cowley Sixth Form College, you must have achieved a minimum of five GCSEs or equivalent, graded 9 – 4, across four separate subjects, including GCSE Mathematics and English Language.

In addition, a positive college interview is required.

HOW IS THE COURSE ASSESSED?
This course is currently assessed from students’ portfolio only.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH AN A-LEVEL IN ART?
Our students have a fantastic record of progressing on to Further Education colleges and universities, regardless of their chosen discipline, whether it is Advertising, Architecture, Theatre Design, Costume Design, Sculpture, Fine Art, Graphic Design, Games Design or Film/Television.
