Why choose this course?
This is a broadly based course with opportunities for the open-minded student to engage with a wider range of Art practice and materials. The course combines practical and theoretical material enabling students to develop their power of observation, analysis and communication; and their making skills. The stress is on personal development and experimentation with ideas, techniques and media.

A wide range of careers are available for well trained and qualified artists as many employers highly value creative and flexible thinking.
