Art, Craft & Design
Course Director Daniel Glenister
Art, craft and design promotes learning across a variety of experiences and through various processes, tools, techniques, materials and resources to generate different kinds of evidence of working and outcomes. Students explore, through a range of two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional processes and media, practical application of skills and relevant critical and contextual sources such as the work of contemporary artists, craftspeople and designers and the different purposes, intentions and functions of art. The course is 60% coursework and 40% Externally set exam which will happen in the final year.
