What will you be working towards?
||Art & Design Crafts
The Course is designed to give you the opportunity to explore a wide range of materials, techniques and processes, focusing on drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, textiles, surface decoration and three dimensional design craft. The course is supported by a series of educational visits to galleries and exhibitions so that you can experience the work you study at first hand which culminates in an overseas visit on the extended diploma to cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin or New York. By then progressing onto the second year of the Extended Diploma, there will be an emphasis on you as an aspiring artist or designer to choose your own themes from which to work, with the opportunity to collaborate on live projects, such as community outreach projects for the town or local charities. You will be given the skills to develop an outstanding portfolio which supports the majority of our students in gaining entry to some of the best universities in the country including UAL, Goldsmiths and Brighton.
