Explore a broad range of art and design activity and build up a balanced portfolio to apply for further study, or for your own personal development. Most materials included. This is a structured course which offers an introduction to a broad range of art and design activity covering two and three dimensional areas as an evening programme over three terms in one year. If offers an opportunity for those who wish to build up a balanced portfolio with which to apply for further study, such as a Foundation Diploma. It is also suitable for those who want to pursue art and design for personal development. The course is divided into a number of four to six modules each centred around a core of ideas which are explored visually through a range of related media. The course is at intermediate level, and we ask students to bring some recent work to the interview. We are interested in anything you have done that you feel is visually creative, in any medium. We especially like to see drawings and sketchbook work. If any work is too large or difficult to carry you can show it as photographs or on your laptop computer. You should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions to support demonstrations, hand-outs and for health and safety information, and will be invited to take part in group discussion. You should be able to use numbers and be able to do simple measurements and calculations.
