Advanced Higher Art and Design

The National Qualification in Art and Design (Design) gives learners the opportunity to extend and apply the design skills they have developed during the Higher Art and Design course or elsewhere. It enables learners to demonstrate personal autonomy and creative decision making when developing and realising their design ideas and solutions.

The Advanced Higher Art and Design (Expressive) course provides opportunities for learners to develop their creativity, visual awareness and understanding of aesthetic, while exploring how to communicate their personal thoughts, ideas and opinions through their expressive artwork. This involves visually exploring and responding in an individual way to stimuli, researching challenging expressive art contexts and evaluating how artists respond creatively to stimuli.

Content for the Design portfolio can be found on the SQA Secure website. You can arrange access to these materials through your SQA Co-ordinator.
