Why Study GCSE Art, Craft and Design?

Art and Design is a creative, practical subject that allows you to use and develop your artistic skills in an expressive way. It promotes visual awareness, encourages problem solving, risk-taking and the development of personal opinion.

GCSE Art is not the easy option! The ability to draw is desired and it is very intense; students should aim to be independent, skilful, organised and committed.
