Art & Design | Introduction to Art & Design
Why this course?
This is a highly practical and enjoyable course intended to further your skills in art and design with the aim of producing a portfolio of work.
You will explore a wide range of basic skills, experimental techniques, processes and use of different media through the completion of project work.
There will be both group and individual tutorials to support your learning and you will be required to produce a body of developmental art and design work, including sketchbook work, which may be used for the development of your own creative practice or to assist with applications for future progression onto art and design courses (for example, our intermediate level course).
An informal interview with one of the Art department tutors may be required to study this course.
The course is part-time, one day per week from 10.00am - 2.30pm.
