This is a one year Diploma course, grounded in studio practice and aimed at those considering Higher Education studies in art and design. We are still accepting applications for this academic year. Our Art Foundation offers the chance to gain a BTEC 540 Diploma in Art and Design Practice and focuses on critical awareness, creative abilities, and building practical and theoretical skills. Your hours spent in our well equipped studios will give you the opportunity to experiment widely and take creative risks in order to develop a broad portfolio of work and professional behaviours required for progression. It also provides opportunities to develop art, design and media skills over the course of study through a process of self-direction, reflective practice and communication, which are key skills for progression to higher education and personal development as an artist. These requirements mean that learners develop the transferable and higher-order skills that are demanded by universities and employers. A student loan is available for this course.
Are you ready to take your art to the next level? Then this course is for you. Develop your own practice or prepare a portfolio for Foundation or HND. Some students progress directly to BA and Masters. You will work towards a NCFE Level 2 certificate. Applications are still being taken for this academic year - complete a form (below) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
