Art, Design & Photography

There are four main specialist areas within Art & Design: Fashion and Textiles, Photography, Fine Art and Graphic & 3D Design. In each of these areas you will be taught by an experienced teaching team with professional experience. They will push you to reach exciting, imaginative and challenging solutions, where aesthetics and function are balanced and ideas are thought-provoking and visually stimulating.

We offer courses from Levels 1-4, so whatever stage you’re at in your education, we can guide you in developing your practical and academic skills. Our goal is to equip you with the tools you need to move onto Higher Education or straight into work.

Level 2 teaches a broad range of Art & Design skills that cover a range of disciplines.

At Level 3 you choose to specialise in either Photography, Graphics & 3D, Fashion & Textiles or Fine Art.

Technology and its use will play a key role in your study and creative practice. Vocationally, we will provide you with an awareness of historical, contemporary and emerging Art & Design issues, within your chosen specialist area as well as developing your practical skills.

We are one of the very best equipped FE Colleges in the country for Art & Design with a range of dedicated Art Studios, Photography Studios, a professional dark room and Apple Mac suites with a full range of professionally relevant software including Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator and industry standard equipment including professional cameras.

We frequently work in partnership with a range of external companies, which provide work-related opportunities and the chance to exhibit work on a public platform. Our photography courses are supported by global organisation Trend Micro and this relationship benefits our students by offering them great opportunities such as real design briefs, external exhibitions, the opportunity to build professional contacts and for some, financial support towards study. Throughout all of our courses we embed employability skills and support you in applying for further study or employment.
