Students will be introduced to a wide range of techniques and learn new processes within Art and Design including, observational drawing, painting, black & white darkroom photography, digital photography, Photoshop, textiles, printmaking, 3D processes, including wood, metals, plastics and glass, mould making and laser cutting.
This will take place over six units throughout the academic year and will explore a range of Art and Design disciplines before taking more ownership in their final project of the year and selecting which media they would like to progress with.
Project work is supported and inspired by a wide variety of trips to London, Oxford and Portsmouth to exploring art galleries and museums to gain primary research and inspiration.
Students are expected to study for an additional 5-10 hours outside of timetabled hours.
