The subject is very broad which allows students to explore a wide range of media and themes. The course will allow a certain amount of freedom for students to choose projects based upon their interests and passions. Students will build projects in their lessons by researching artworks, producing studies and taking photographs, experimenting with a range of media, techniques and processes in order to produce ideas. This is all undertaken in sketchbooks. A final outcome will be produced separately and this can range from a ceramic pot, to a drawing, painting or mixed media piece.
