Art and Design (Year 2)

Glasgow Kelvin College


West End Campus


Entering the 2nd year for the HND in Art & Design will help you hone existing knowledge and skills and enhance your creative vision. The course nurtures individuality, inspires experimentation and encourages the achievement of personal goals. You will undertake in-depth exploration of a range of materials allied with conceptual ideas and put together a strong portfolio for 2nd year entry to Art School.

The course encourages experimentation and will equip you with a range of skills and techniques, a creative process and the vocabulary required at degree level. A critical component is the ability to develop ideas from conception to solution along with the capacity to verbalise and present concepts and work in a professional manner. Ongoing critiques, tutorials and reflective practice will help you to develop these skills.

Students also have the opportunity to develop skills in presenting their own and other artists’ work through regular seminars and exhibitions in our gallery space. We aim to prepare you as fully as possible for life at degree level or employment. It is a fundamental principle that you develop your own style, can work independently and that your portfolio reflects this ability.
