This programme has been designed to enable students with a strong creative desire to access vocational Art and Design study. The Level 2 programme allows for broad based Art and Design study in core subject areas including Drawing, Design and Visual Communication. The course enables you to experience an introduction to elements such as printmaking, graphics, fashion, textiles, 3D design and fine art. Visits to galleries and field trips are an essential part of the programme. You will learn about 2D and 3D Visual Communication, research the development of Art and Design through history to the present day, explore and develop Art and Design ideas and produce an Art and Design outcome. Successful completion of the Programme gives the opportunity for progression to the Level 3 course. Developing practical skills in English, maths and information and communication technology (ICT) are an integral and compulsory part of the programme.
