Art Scholarship

Art A-Level at Chobham

Art Scholarship available for every A-level student with a value of £500+ in equipment, international trips, digital portfolio development and one-to-one critique guidance. See attached leaflet below.

But what is the point?

Art and Design equips students with the skills to enjoy, produce and engage 1with the visual arts throughout their lives, and it has immense value as an A-Level subject.

Creativity is essential in a global economy that needs a workforce that is knowledgeable, imaginative and innovative. Studying arts subjects also increases social mobility – encouraging and motivating students from low-income families to go into higher education. Studying the arts can also help with understanding, interpreting and negotiating the complexities and diversity of society.

Your Art Journey – Your Choice!

2Fine Art may be defined as work developed primarily to communicate aesthetic, intellectual or purely conceptual ideas and meaning, rather than to serve a practical or commercial function. For example, work could be the outcome of personal experiences, thoughts and feelings, or simply to observe and record people, places and things in new and unique ways. Fine-art work will demonstrate an understanding and application of formal elements and creative skills, including mark-making. Students will use visual communication sensitively and thoughtfully to document their artistic journey and fully support their intentions.

How does it help with future pathways?

  • Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity.
  • Creativity can also help with wellbeing and improving health and happiness – many students in the TALE study commented that arts lessons acted as an outlet for releasing the pressures of studying as well as those of everyday life.3
  • Studying arts subjects also help to develop critical thinking and the ability to interpret the world around us.
  • Engagement with the arts helps young people develop a sense of their own identity and value. This in turn develops personal responsibility within their school and wider community.
  • The art room is a space where students have the freedom to express their ideas and thoughts and work creatively.
  • The way art is taught means that interaction with other students and with the teacher is different in art and design classes. Students comment on the bonds they form with classmates because of their shared interests and ideas. The art teacher is someone they can bounce ideas off rather than telling them what to do.

What Chobham A-Level Students say?

4“Taking A-level art was taking a huge leap of faith…and I’m so glad I did it! I’ve been given so many opportunities to go out to huge and beautiful galleries and my skills have improved drastically over the two years because of all the experimentations I’ve been allowed to do. As students, we have all been allowed so much control in the progression of our artworks and what your focus/theme is- so much so that art has become a part of my daily life. This means that my artwork represents me, and the beliefs and ideas I hold.” Elsa Kunushefci Y13
