ART AND DESIGN
Excellent facilities and specialist teaching make Art and Design at 14:19 Abingdon an attractive prospect. The course explores a wide range of ideas using varied techniques and media.
You will work from a variety of first and second-hand sources across a range of themes including natural and man-made environments, the figure and still life. Individual themes are developed for both the coursework and exam elements.
The unendorsed Art and Design syllabus covers a wide range of areas including Fine Art, 3D and Textiles. The endorsed Fine Art course focuses mainly on painting, drawing and mixed media, but also incorporates other elements such as Animation, Film and Photography.
AS/A Level Art is assessed by coursework: personal investigation and study (50%), and through a timed, externally set assignment at the end of the course (50%). Analysis and investigation into past and present arts practice is also part of the course. You will visit exhibitions to gain an understanding of contemporary and past arts. The work is always varied and includes group discussion and tutorial teaching. Studios are always open for use in study time.
