Year 12 within the art department is all about experimentation, developing skills, confidence and stretching personal strengths and ideas. Practical Workshops are central to building a strong portfolio and reinforcing strong observational and experimentation skills. Within each of the specialisms, key skills are explored through a range of bespoke workshops which culminate in the presentation of a skilled based project preparing students for year 13 and their Personal Investigation Project.
A2 is about the individual, their strengths, interests and preferences– a totally personal project. A practical portfolio of work, supported by a written investigative essay along with a final response is created by students and submitted as well as the Externally Set Task at A2.
