    I am attending school (lower sixth), but I would like to independently study AS, A2 art at home, apart from the other subjects I do at school. The problem is that I'm not even sure if that is possible. Has anyone done anything similar?(independent studies at home), advise??
    P.S I am sorry about the quality of my english

    Students who successfully complete Art at A level do a massive amount of time consuming work inside and outside school. They usually get a lot of feedback and support from other students and from teachers. It is hard enough to do well taking it as one of your A level subjects at school, doing it on top of a full timetable would be foolish in my opinion. Do your art as a hobby outside school, do weekend or evening courses to learn more and develop your work. Everything doesn't have to be about getting A levels.

    I am already very experienced in Art, having studied it for many years outside school. Would have taken it as an A level subject, if the school provided it. I have been told that if one wants to study architecture or history of art at universty, taking A level art is a good start. But it is true that it will probably be difficult to do art as an extra subject outside school, especially when having to complete a huge amount of workload with the other subjects.
