Course Description

What you will study The course is made up of eight units: contextual references in art and design, 2D visual communication, 3D visual communication, using ideas to explore, develop and produce art and design, building an art and design portfolio, working in the art and design industry, working with textiles briefs and working with 3D design crafts briefs. Project related trips to galleries, including a day trip to London, are part of the course. You will also work towards Functional Skills or GCSE qualifications in Maths and English. Maths and English are key elements of any full-time programme of study in College. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects, you will need to attend sessions allocated on your timetable. These are varied and designed to cater for all ability levels. You will receive advice and guidance regarding the correct level for you. Skills in Maths and English will support your full-time course, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study. Your Course Structure Classroom: 20%; Practical: 80% How you will learn The course will be delivered through a series of assignments and practical workshops. Whether your interest is digital, graphics, textiles or fine art, you will have the opportunity to work in our specialist studios and IT suites, and use a variety of 2D and 3D media, equipment and tools. Our projects provide the opportunity and flexibility for you to work to your skills, interests and strengths, producing work based on modern scenarios and realistic situations.
