7 courses -View Courses
The study of creative subjects gives a great foundation in problem solving, and innovative thinking which is highly prized in a professional workplace.
We encourage and support a broad, experimental approach providing our students with excellent skills to take forward into the creative industry. You will experience traditional, state of the art and experimental facilities and you will be taught techniques, processes and skills by specialist industry-trained staff, allowing you to develop projects which fulfil your own ambitions.
Our students are taught using excellent traditional, state of the art and experimental facilities, such as; print studio, textiles workshop, ceramics room, 3D workshop with wood, metal and resin facilities, a 3D printer and large bed laser cutter, brand new specialist PC suite carrying industry standard software, photographic studio and dark room and a large, dedicated drawing and painting studio.
You will have the opportunity to collaborate with professional artists and photographers to gain valuable experience as you work on curating and delivering an Arts Festival and engage in a variety of live projects and experiences – including international, national and local trips, life drawing and talks from visiting artists and photographers.
