Our Access to Art, Design and Media course prepares students to progress on to a range of undergraduate and higher diploma courses in art,design or media. Students will expand their creative and technical skills by investigating the fundamental principles at the heart of all art and design practice. This includes drawing, painting, model making, collage, design process and digital manipulation. As the course progresses, students will work within their chosen area of specialism and take an individual approach to interpreting project briefs. By developing analytical skills and the ability to work independently, a personalised art and design portfolio is generated for university application.
Recent students have progressed to study specialisms including fine art, product design, architecture, interior design, textiles, graphics, illustration and animation.
