This course is the first step if you want to go to university or want
a career in art and design. It's a dynamic,
fast-paced way of realising your goals.
The course is divided into three stages:
Exploratory, You are introduced to a range of art and design disciplines
Pathways, You choose your own personal artistic direction
Confirmatory, You write and deliver your own project brief.
You will also be introduced to printmaking, digital media and life drawing.
The course has been designed to teach you 'how to do' and 'how to
think' -- the essential components of success in today's thriving
creative industries. The subjects covered are extensive. Students have
progressed to degree courses in fine art, visual communication,
animation, illustration, fashion and textiles, theatre design, costume
design, photography, games design, interior design and product design.
The course includes trips and gallery visits, and concludes with an exhibition of student work.
