What's involved?

Induction
You will investigate and learn various skills and techniques that will enable you to work in a variety of materials with confidence and creativity. This will include using charcoal, ink, paint (acrylic, water colour and oil) and print making. You will also develop a range of techniques, such as creating composition, colour theory, perspective, anatomy and working from life which will help you in your development as an artist.

Building on your portfolio
Themes such as the human form, natural environment or man and machine will be used to develop a selection of work for your sketchbook and portfolio. Work can include paintings, prints and/or 3D pieces.

Personal Investigation
This a practical unit with written elements (1,000 word) in which you are expected to develop a personal investigation based on an idea, artist, theme or movement leading to a final fine art response.

Final Project
In this unit you will extend your skill, knowledge and understanding of sculpture. You will create a body of work in either 2D or 3D that will answer the set question in a visually inventive way. You will need to look at the work of others, do observational drawings, take your own photographs, add annotation and do a final evaluation.

Progression:
Students who have previously studied Fine Art have gone on to embark on careers in Fine Art, Special Effect, Gallery Assistant, Restoration, Animation, Art History, Teaching or setting themselves up as a practising Artist.
