What will you be working towards?
||GCE A/AS Level or Equivalent
Fine Art makes a difference to how we see the world. Studying Fine Art at Lewes will make all the difference to you. You start by exploring techniques within drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. We show you traditional and up-to-date skills, so you can work with knowledge and confidence. You need to know how different media can be made to work. We help you see how artists have created new visions through practical work. The best start for experimentation, comes from confidence. We will teach you skills that you can apply to your original work and achieve success. We take you through the whole project process. Sketchbooks record your thoughts and development. You apply what you learn from looking at art and using techniques. Your work comes from what you bring to the course.
How will it be delivered?
You will be set regular assignments and projects that will create identified assessment points. These will feed into your progress profile which drives the College Report process and compares you to your Target Minimum Grade which is based on your prior achievements at GCSE level. It also enables us to effectively measure your development and make estimated grade predictions.
This continuous assessment then directs our guidance and support ensuring that your individual learning programme meets your needs.
