Program description

Awarded by: Pearson Education Ltd

The course is for those wanting to develop creative industry skills toward a professional standard portfolio. The course will offer learners the opportunity to explore media and materials in creative ways and to use them to fulfil their own goals and objectives. It will enable learners to obtain new skills and build on existing knowledge using well equipped workspaces and art studios.

The programme incorporates exciting opportunities for learners to consider the work of other artists and discuss the ways in which artists communicate. A guest speaker programme will help to develop an understanding of artists’ work and will give learners first-hand experience of hearing artists, designers and other creative industries professionals speak, with opportunities to ask questions. The course enhances professional qualities and supports learners in exhibiting work in galleries, promoting their identity on social media and building up contacts with local arts organisations, leading students into managing their own arts events.

There are excellent opportunities for learners to gain valuable experience from overseas trips, contemporary galleries and retail. For example, students have spent time in Berlin, Florence, London based galleries as well as visiting flagship fashion stores to explore how fine artists are now being commissioned to make creative statements.

Tutors that teach on the course are all practising artists and designers and are keen to help all students to get the best from their time on the course.
