If you are a creative and curious person, this course will help you explore your talents and transform them into a career. The Art and Design Level 2 Diploma is all about taking your initial ideas and helping you express them in a creative way. You’ll consider a range of artistic disciplines, as you discover where your creative strength lies. The course is a mix of practical and theoretical learning, shaping your skills for a career in the arts. Directed by experienced artists and designers, you’ll be learning from professionals who have enjoyed successful careers because of their creative passion and expertise.
Our specialist studios and digital facilities will introduce you to a range of materials and techniques. We create a friendly and supportive environment, so you can test your creative limits and step out of your comfort zone. By doing this, you’ll develop your own creative approach, preparing you well for future study and your career.
At the end of the course, you’ll have a portfolio of dynamic and diverse work. We encourage you to explore your creative instincts, learning how to present and realise your ideas. With this knowledge, you will be ready to develop more advanced techniques on the Art and Design Level 3 Diploma.
From here, you can move forward in any direction you like. Many of our students continue their studies at foundation and degree level. Others go into the industry through an apprenticeship programme.
Whatever you choose, our support team and teaching staff will guide you in your decision. All that matters during this course is that you discover your passion – we’re here to help you turn that into a career.
“I chose to study the Foundation in Art and Design course and specialised in Photography. College gives you a lot more freedom, the lessons are structured more professionally which gives you an idea of what it will be like at university. I would really recommend this course if you want to grow as a designer."Alfie Reddy
