The Art and Design A Level Curriculum
At Riverside, students will embark on a personal journey by the way of creative expression. We offer students the opportunities to develop a contemporary and historical practice in a creative and inspirational environment. The art and design department is fully equipped with a tailored art studio for sixth formers enabling them to grow as independent learners in a professional surrounding. Students will explore a wide range of mediums including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation and mixed media.
Students will be given the unique opportunity to work closely with artists, designers and craftspeople through our artist in residency and links with the University of the Arts London. A Level art students also take part in the ARTiculation Prize where they will learn to build on their critical thinking skills as well as public speaking skills. We aim to prepare our students with the knowledge and experiences to prepare them for a successful career especially within the creative industries.
