Level 3 Visual Art Design

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Blackwell

Level 3 Design builds on the student's understanding of the relevant methods, ideas, and conventions introduced in Level 2 Design. They are required to develop and resolve final outcomes for a design brief of their choosing (in consultation with the teacher). Students will research and be inspired by established artists and designers, while creating their own individual aesthetic in the design field of their choosing.

The three panel 14 credit portfolio submission is a culmination of their year's work in Design and the 3.5 assessment would only be entered as an alternative to the external portfolio.
