Level 1 Art and Design


The course is designed to be an introduction to the world of art and design. Students have the opportunity to learn a wide variety of skills that will include drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture. 

Through these activities, they will learn perhaps the most important skill of all – how to see and respond to the visual world. Research using the internet and library resources will form part of the learning programme. Students will be looking at the work of other artists to inform and inspire their own work.

They will also have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a public exhibition at the end of the year. In addition to the practical work in the studio, students will go on trips and visits that directly relate to the projects they will be doing. Alongside learning creative skills, students will also develop more academic skills in English and maths

Here is some of the fantastic work the learners have produced over what has been a difficult and disruptive year.
