This is a very broad course and covers all areas of Art including: drawing, illustration, painting, print making, photography, ceramics and 3D. You will be encouraged to develop your own style and can personalize your coursework to suit your individual interests. After completing a GCSE in Art and Design, you may wish to consider A level Art and Design, photography or Art Textiles.
If after A levels, you intend to do a Diploma or Foundation Course in Art, you are advised to take GCSE Art. This is a good subject to choose if you want to become an artist, illustrator, graphic designer, fashion designer, photographer, web designer, computer games designer, interior designer, architect teacher or theatrical designer to name but a few. Most of these require further study at an art school, further education college or university.
