The course covers a wide range of subjects in both fine art and design disciplines. It introduces students to a broad range of practical skills in both two and three dimensions and develops a critical awareness of the historical, contextual and social issues relevant to art and design practice.
This advanced level course is suitable for people with Higher Art or with previous experience/good achievement in art and design from a non-advanced course. Intermediate 2 English or equivalent is also required.
WHO IS THE COURSE FOR?
This course is designed to allow students to experiment to an advanced level with Art and Design projects. Self generated projects are given so that students may specialise in one of the art and design areas in which they have been taught, to create a portfolio with regards to their chosen subject.
HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
This course is mainly assessed on a continuous basis and does not include an external end-of-course examination. Coursework takes the form of practical project work and visual presentation and written reports. College staff undertake most of the assessment of student work.
