Content

This course offers a diverse range of modules specially selected to expand students’ knowledge and creative approaches to art and design practise. All modules are practical and studio based with a contextual study element.

Drawing is the foundational backbone of the course as well as experimentation with a wide range of 2D, 3D and digital media. An exciting programme of lectures develops historical and contextual awareness of art and design and regular talks by visiting artists bring in new ideas and approaches. An optional study trip to a European city is also built into the course, which gives students an opportunity to visit major art galleries.
