    i've always wanted to take graphic design as a subject but the high school im currently at doesn't offer the course so, i thought that i would do it for my a-levels. but now that i am having to choose courses for my a-levels they dont offer graphic design, only 'art'.
    have you taken just 'art' as an a-level? if yes, do you only do fine art/drawing or do you get to a range of stuff? and also, do you think they might include graphics within the subject?? thankyouu

    There are different 'flavours' of Art possible - e.g.
    Fine art
    „„ Three-dimensional design
    „„ Textile design
    „„ Photography — lens and light-based media
    „„ Graphic communication
    „„ Critical and contextual studies
    but most places do Art (unendorsed) which means that you can do a mixture of any or all of these different types. Ask what sort of Art they do, you will probably be fine.
