COURSE OVERVIEW
Our A-Level Fine Art course here at The Northern School of Art offers you the opportunity to discover how to communicate ideas and meanings in an expressive, inventive and very personal manner, whilst at the same time exploring the real career pathways offered by this discipline.
COURSE DETAILS
The fine artists who deliver the course will help students to really ‘see’ the world around them and record their observations in new and exciting ways. You will experiment with abstract, figurative and symbolic approaches to visual communication using a whole range of approaches, including drawing, painting and printmaking. On successful completion of an A-Level programme of study, which includes this course, you will have the skills and qualifications need to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or go directly into industry employment.
