Hi,
So basically I really enjoy art, but didn't take it for an A level or gcse, and am wondering whether it would still be an option or not.

Thank you!

I think you can because you just need to show you have some exposure to art, show you are interested in it and give your portfolio.

I would think so, as long as you had a good portfolio.
I had a quick look at the art and design foundation at UAL. They don't ask for a-level or GCSE art, but do ask for a portfolio. I imagine this is the case for most art foundation courses, have a look around though.
The only thing they might want to know is why you didn't take for a-level a subject you now want to do a degree in. As long as you have a good portfolio and an answer for that question, I don't see why there would be any issues
