A-Level Art & Design is a wonderfully visual subject, which allows students to explore their creative potential, express themselves visually and learn different ways of looking at, researching and recording creative processes. Starting with project titles students begin to research artists, both contemporary and historical, and respond to works whilst also developing their own voice as an artist through different processes and materials.

Benefits of Studying A-Level Art & Design
Art and Design enables students to express, challenge and embrace their originality. It encourages visual expression and creation, something no other A-Level course provides.
Art and Design allows students to experience a creative personal journey as an individual artist or one that extends to collaboration with others or one that branches into other imaginative areas such as design, advertising, new media, fashion. Studying Art creates so many opportunities and is just the beginning of an important life- long journey.
Art and Design A-Level, however, is a huge step up from studying it at GCSE/ iGCSE level, it requires a lot of coursework that should be created in the student’s own independent study time. Students are expected to research, explore and experiment in order to create a concise sketchbook to illustrate their creative thought processes, developing skill that will benefit their further studies and career possibilities.
Why is it worth studying Art & Design at A-Level?
If you enjoy the challenge and reward of studying Art & Design at GCSE and feel like you want to continue then do. A-level takes the subject into more depth and encourages like other A-level subjects independent study, thinking and doing. It also asks us to look at what is going on artistically around us in our communities and society. Doing Art at A-level opens the creative doors to many inspiring career paths and many students thrive through visual outputs.
