Art and Design

New College Lanarkshire


Kirkintilloch Campus


This course offers you the opportunity to develop individual practice in relation to your own interests. Creative experimentation, concept development and individualism will be wholly encouraged through a range of project based assessments. The work and creative process of other creative practitioners will be investigated and you will also be required to discuss and analyse your own work. Development of your skills in a range of Art and Design subjects and expansion of your awareness and comprehension of conceptual thinking will be the key to your success. Independent learning will be an essential element and central to your year of study, enhanced by the provision of your own personal working space in our custom built studio. The year will conclude with an exhibition of your work.

You will cover subjects such as:
Developmental Drawing Portfolio; Community Arts; Illustration Techniques.

Creative Arts Project: Production, Creative Project for Artists and Designers; Art and Design Context: Personal Investigation; Art and Design Advanced Project; Art and Design: Presentation, Graded Unit 2.
