During the programme you will have the opportunity to explore your creativity within a structure that provides a sound base of skills and knowledge. With access to professionally equipped art and design workshops and studios you will learn through experimentation using a broad range of 2D, 3D and digital processes. Projects will help you to gain a contextual understanding of art and design and support you to make and articulate personal connections and interpretations. You will have the opportunity to take part in exhibitions and gallery visits and to develop your skills through independent and group learning.

Throughout the year you’ll be encouraged to develop personal affinities and interests. In term 3 you will negotiate a self-initiated project enabling you to identify a more specialist area of interest such as graphic design, textiles, 3D design or fine art.
