Level 1 Art and Design

Are you interested in becoming an artist, but don’t know where to start?

The Level 1 Art and Design programme is a practical course that will introduce you to the diverse creative skills that artists use, to help you progress onto Level 2.

Using a qualification written by the artists at the University of the Arts London (UAL), the Level 1 Art and Design course has a range of projects that cover a variety of skills and disciplines, including drawing and painting, model making, and digital work. We’ll help you develop your confidence and the skills that artists use to be creative.

The UK has one of the most diverse and vibrant creative landscapes. The UK Creative Industries currently employ 3.12 million people, generating £101.5 billion last year.

On the course, we will work through a range of projects that will include making models based on a theme, drawing skills, which you can develop according to your tastes - whether you like cartoons, graphic novels or general drawing, photography projects, using Photoshop etc.

On Level 1, we also have a great support team for those learners who require additional support – provided you are willing to learn, we’ll help you get there.

Towards the end of the course, you will choose your own Art and Design specialism, and create a personal project around this. This will help you prepare to progress onto level 2.
