Our Art and Design, Fashion and Photography Courses courses are delivered by tutors with extensive experience in the visual arts sector and their professional expertise is valued by our students. We believe that people learn best when they work together, engaging in the process of debate and dialogue, instruction and construction. Our focus is on developing an environment where your imagination and creativity can flourish, in studios and workshops that are equipped to offer you the opportunity to express and realise your ideas and ambitions.
There are excellent facilities including studio spaces for painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and printmaking, as well as dark rooms. Further Education study programmes are offered across a wide range of art and design subjects and the Hay Gallery provides a versatile exhibition space for displaying students’ work.
