The Art and History of Art course consists of practical and theoretical lessons. The course is designed to familiarise students with different techniques, concepts and possibilities. All students are required to undergo practical lessons in free-hand drawing on natural and life objects. Each student is required to complete studies in the human figure, contemporary art and three- dimensional projects in fine art.
All students are also required to attend History of Art lessons which cover 2000 years of historical art. This is intended to develop students’ critical powers to enable them to criticise and analyse different works of art.
- A Level students: first year students have four practical sessions and two History of Art lessons and second year students have three practical sessions and two History of Art lessons.
- Intermediate Level students have two practical and two History of Art lessons.
- It is strongly recommended that students are in possession of a SEC certificate in Art at grade 4 or better. Applicants with lower marks may be accepted only after presenting a portfolio of not less than ten drawings and paintings.
Students will be informed at the start of the course.
