COURSE OVERVIEW

This course gives students who have not yet achieved or who need to build on their academic qualifications the chance to gain the equivalent of four GCSEs through an exciting and creative range of 2D and 3D art and design subjects such as painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic design, surface design, fashion and 3D design.

WHAT WILL YOU STUDY

Students will be shown how they can express individual ideas and thoughts through a wide range of art and design skills and techniques. They will create a portfolio of work that will reflect their unique potential within art and design and enable them to study further or gain employment. Students will also explore the work of other artists and designers and learn how they have made a career in art and design. This work is supported by educational visits to galleries and other cultural places of interest. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in industrial led projects and competitions. All of this is managed by highly creative and experienced tutors who will support and help students to develop their skills as well as helping them to gain confidence on both a personal and creative level. Tutors will also ensure that students receive the right support and guidance to progress onto further courses or employment. Our studios are creative and stimulating places to work and our excellent resources and space ensure that each student can develop their talents in a safe, comfortable and spacious environment.

The course is much more varied than I thought it would be!
