Why take Art A Level ?
A level art gives you complete freedom with your creativity. From one main topic, you are able to expand your work however you like. For example, my current Year 12 class are studying “Aspects of Nature” and the ideas we have thought of are so different and unique from each other. I first started looking at individual human features and have now developed that initial idea into the different perspectives of people, but I also know that other students in my class are drawing flowers and wild animals. There is no limit to what you do which I think really helps to enjoy the subject even more.

I am one of the new year 12 art prefects and although I loved doing art at GCSE level (even if we never finished), starting my A level course has been the best decision I could have possibly made. We have started our aspects of nature projects for which I have chosen to focus, at least for now, on textures and patterns seen in trees. Now that we are in year 12, our individuality and independence is very evident in our books, and no two people have the same project which is really inspiring and interesting to see. If you are considering art as one of your options, I would definitely recommend taking it; it is so important to have lessons and projects to look forward to! I would recommend staying organised and making the most of your lessons to get as much done in school, with help from the brilliant art department, as you can. Good luck!
