Content

This one-year course is based in the inspiring location of the Isle of Skye. Making the most of the landscape, students will learn to work in a range of environments and gain knowledge from experienced tutors and professional artists. With small group sizes and a purpose-built studio in our Portree centre, the learning experience is full of exciting challenges, enabling students to explore a variety of art and design disciplines. These include drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making, digital imaging, textiles and design. The end of the course is celebrated with a full-scale exhibition, managed and led by the class.

The NC is designed to enable students to prepare a comprehensive portfolio of work suitable for submission to higher education courses across the UK, including HNC Contemporary Art Practice at West Highland College and BA (Hons) Fine Art across UHI.
