Art - Fine Art

Fine Art 

Examination Board: AQA

AS/A-Level Art: Fine Art and/or Art, Craft & Design encourages a broad approach which allows students to develop a sound grounding in a variety of media, while still exploring the subject in-depth.

Both the Fine Art and the Art Craft & Design course at Stover allow students to develop skills in a range of media. From painting, print and sculpture to film, multimedia and mixed media. The course allows students flexibility to experiment with different techniques and to specialise if they so wish. Students are encouraged to build on their successes at GCSE and begin to work in a more conceptual manner. Making connections with other artists becomes more and more important, and trips and gallery visits are offered to enrich experiences.
