Art and Design Portfolio Course

This course introduces adult learners (19+) to a range of 2D art processes, including drawing, painting, collage, printmaking, and mixed media. The course aims to prepare students for progression to our degree level programme in Illustration Arts (FdA), developing both practical skills as well as the ability to think critically and creatively. You may already have some experience of art and design, or you might be someone with an open mind who would like an introduction to this exciting and challenging field. If you are looking for a pathway into Higher Education study at South Devon College, or even considering the possibility of future specialist study and employment in illustration and visual communication, then this could be the course for you.

“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
