Recommended Prior Learning

To be accepted for this course students must have earned 14 credits from Level 1 Digital Art, or have received HOF approval

Level 2 Art Design extends and expands on skills learned in Level 1 Digital Art. 

Art Design involves drawing and computer-based learning. Students explore a range of graphic design styles and illustration techniques using a variety of digital tools including Adobe software and drawing tablets. Students have the opportunity to take their work into a variety of final outcomes, including print, digital, laser cutting, and 3D printing. 

The programme for this course is devised by the student, in collaboration with the teacher, around a theme chosen by the student. Students are encouraged to be innovative and explore art-making which is relevant to their own interests. Existing skills are developed and enhanced, by looking at contemporary and traditional artist role models.  

The 12-credit external exam is created during class and is a cumulative display of their year’s work.
