You will be taught in the College’s Michael Gray Art and Music Centre by enthusiastic and experienced staff. Students are encouraged to confidently create independent project work that will begin by building on your practical skills and exploring ideas and techniques before going on to incorporate this experimental work into considered design solutions.
The course will consist of workshop sessions (where new techniques/approaches will be taught), 1:1 guidance with staff, and lectures/discussions where we will analyse our own work and the work of established artists and designers. Students are encouraged to keep up to date with the latest developments and trends in art and design.
You will attend 4.5 hours of classes a week and expected to carry out an equal amount of private study per week.
You will study six units over two years covering a range of design related subjects, including graphics, illustration, CAD (computer aided design), typography, photography and animation, as well as exploring the work of past and present designers, illustrators and artists. Challenging project work will enable you to develop your creative and technical skills in both traditional and electronic media.
