Level 2 Art and Design

The UK has one of the most diverse and vibrant creative landscapes. The UK Creative Industries currently employs 3.12 million people, generating £101.5 billion last year. This course perfectly prepares you to be a part of this excting sector.

This course is a practical course that will help you develop a broad range of creative skills ready for progression to Level 3, which is equivalent to three A Levels.

Validated by the world-renowned University of the Arts London (UAL), this course puts you in control of your own progress, choosing specialisms that suit you and allowing you to discover your potential and develop the confidence to work in the creative industries. UAL qualifications give you the freedom to explore your potential, take creative risks and find the path that challenges and excites you. You'll learn through experimentation and exploration by engaging with practical and theory sessions, projects, lectures, trips and visits.

The course includes a range of projects which mix professional skills with fun projects that will encourage you to develop a wide range of skills. For example, some of the projects we’ve done so far include creating the ‘Celebrating Difference’ project, which looks at what makes us all different, created ‘Frankenstein’s Laboratory’ as a 3D model movie set and created a visual story around an ‘Alien Invasion of Gateshead’.

In the final stage of the course you will choose your own art and design specialism which you will develop further in the personal project, helping you prepare for the next stages and develop a portfolio of work ready to progress to Level 3.
