This course is accredited by the University of the Arts London awarding body, Europe's largest specialist arts and design university.
If you want to develop your interest in art and design in all its forms and pursue a future in the creative industries, but haven’t yet chosen an area of specialism, then this course is perfect for you.
You’ll learn by exploring 2D and 3D material and processes, developing ideas and concepts, solving problems and completing wide-ranging research of artists, designers, cultures and crafts.
You will take part in workshops on:
- 3D design
- Graphic media
You will explore ideas and concepts through moving image, performance art and installation art and develop areas of specialist interest and study, building your confidence. In Year 2 we’ll support you with progression choices and you can expect to be supported to find your own path. You'll visit local and national galleries, and take part in a studio-based art show, live project briefs, events and competitions.
You’ll create a portfolio to help secure a university place, apprenticeship or employment.
