Art (Pre-U)

We study Art and Design in order to find innovative ways to observe, describe and change the world around us and our ever evolving relationship with it. We look at how artists and designers have invented new ways of seeing and making, and strive to add our own, unique voice to the conversation.

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced"

                                                                        Vincent Van Gogh

The study of Art and Design is a lifestyle choice; its resonance stretches far past the confines of the examination room, and encourages imaginative contributions to the discipline through self-motivated and personal production. Whether you intend to capture your ideas on canvas or design London’s next skyscraper, Art and Design offers a route for those intending to apply for creative courses at university, including Architecture and Graphic Design. At Harris Westminster Sixth Form, you will have the opportunity to engage your fascination with the visual and material world and to expand and develop your work.
