New 1st Year BTEC - Getting Ahead Work

Welcome to the BTEC at Alton and welcome to the Blog - your go to reference for all Course related stuff.

We want you to enjoy your Summer, but it would be great if that included some Cultural enrichment, so how about:

Soaking up some Culture and getting enthused by visiting exhibitions and galleries in London. Have a great day out and visit some of these:

Grayson Perry 8 June – 10 September 2017

From Selfie to Self-Expression 31 March - 23 July 2017

This is the world’s first exhibition exploring the history of the selfie from the old masters to the present day, and celebrates the truly creative potential of a form of expression often derided for its inanity. 

If you really can’t get up to London…

Then do something else to extend your knowledge of contemporary Art:
Contribute: If you produce a fantastic creative piece of your own over the Summer, then photograph it and use the #iamartataltoncollege to add it to our Instagram page 

Deadline: Ensure you’ve Read, Watched, Visited or Contributed something before term starts on 11th September, even better do all four!
