Recommended Prior Learning

Level 2 Art offers you the opportunity of choosing from three stand-alone subjects, Photography/Design. There is a common way of working for these subjects that is quite specific. You must work systematically and your work must show an understanding of Art making conventions and ideas. All Visual Art courses from Level 1 onwards are designed so that you become familiar with this process. The internal standards allow you to become familiar with conventions and ideas associated with the subject you choose. Your folder allows you to mix this information with your own ideas and build a systematic body of work that shows you are making informed decisions about how your work develops.
