If you are applying for any A Level Art & Design course, and are not studying an art-and-design-route GCSE, you will need to provide a portfolio for each subject you are applying for. Please deliver your named portfolio(s) to Visitors’ Reception by the beginning of June for the department to assess your work.

Fine Art

  • You must show us 9 drawings in total, all from real life, and using a variety of different media (eg pencil, pen, biro, paint, crayon etc)
  • PLUS, 200 words about a painting of your choice, telling us why you like it, and how you respond to it. Ideally, this should be a painting you have seen on display.

Graphic Design

  • You must show us 9 drawings in total, all from real life, and using a variety of different media (eg pencil, pen, biro, paint, crayon etc)
  • PLUS, a 200-word description with illustrations (no internet images or text), of a designer, typographer or illustrator of your choice.

Photography

You will need to demonstrate evidence of a creative approach to photography. You will need to show a mounted collection of 10-20 photographs exploring light and shadow at Induction in July. Each photograph should have a brief written evaluation outlining why you have chosen it and your interpretation of the composition.

Textiles

  • You must show us 9 drawings in total, from real life observation of plants, flowers or other natural objects, using a variety of different media (eg pencil, pen, biro, paint, crayon etc)
  • PLUS, 200 words about a piece of textile art, an item of fashion, or a theatrical or historical costume.

We recommend that you only take ONE Art & Design course if you are joining us via the Portfolio route. Please discuss with a member of the Art and Design department if you have any queries.
