VAN101
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: R. Hatcliffe

This 'new' Level 1 Visual Arts course enables students to further develop their creativity and provides opportunities for them to extend their interests in painting, sculpture and photography. Students will learn how to generate, develop, refine and modify their own ideas around a theme and teacher directed programme. Artist models will be researched to understand processes and procedures to assist students in expanding ideas using a range of mixed media. Unlike VAF101 this course does not have a folio attached to it and students will complete 3 internal assessments worth 14 credits in total.
