Throughout the year, you will be working on developing a portfolio which will enable you to progress on to degree level study. Normally, you will exhibit your work in an end of year show.


The course will build on your existing experience and abilities and to prepare you for the demands of study at university or in some other form of training or employment within the art and design sector. It is a practical based course which gives you opportunities for experimenting with a wide range of materials and techniques before opting for a specialism, developing your individuality, initiative and confidence.
