The College offers two HKDSE subjects under Arts and Design: Visual Arts, and Technology and Living (Fashion, Clothing and Textiles). Both subjects include elements of design theory, implementation and creation.
- Basic sketching module: Students learn how to use different creative media for basic sketching. They practise using lines, colours and pen techniques to present effects of light and dark, three-dimensionality, space, transparency, texture, structure etc.
- Basic graphic design module: Students learn about graphic design and typography. They study real life examples of graphic design for business to understand the use of points, lines and surfaces in graphic design, and how to satisfy the demands of target audiences.
- Interior design and typography module: Students appreciate different interior design approaches across societies, cultures and histories, and explore the relationship between interior design and cities. They develop an understanding of the basics of typography by studying well-known fonts and exploring the role and functions of typography in design.
- Symbols and feeling (print theory) module: Students explore the relationship between symbols and feelings. They use different methods of printing (lithographs, chromatic, intaglio, monolithic) to express their creative ideas through symbolism. They also appreciate woodcut prints to explore how transformations of lines and the distribution of positive and negative space deepen the feelings expressed by artwork.
- Society and culture (photography, multimedia design) module: Students develop understanding of the history of photography, and visual and artistic elements in photography. Photography and its relationship with history, society and culture will be explored. Through the appreciation and creation of photographic models (FOTOMO), students display their care for society and its people.
- Graphic design module (2): Students deepen their understanding of the functions of package design. Project-based learning is used in this module, as students build an image for a brand, through which they explore topics related to package design, including the use of structure, materials and colours.
- Form 5 students must complete two works for the School-Based Assessment (SBA).
- Aesthetics and visual arts in context (further studies in drawing) module: Students use acrylics and watercolour as media to display their care for the modern living environment and social issues.
- Traditional and modern (mixed media, installation art) module: Students explore the relationship between art and exhibition space. They use their imagination and problem-solving skills to develop ideas.
- Form 6 students must complete two works for the School-Based Assessment (SBA).
