The aim of the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design is to create an exciting and meaningful experience through immersion in a range of activities which nurture students existing abilities, introduce them to new skills, techniques, and ways of seeing the world. Students will develop high levels of critical thinking and creative interpretation.
Through our work with Breeze Creatives we are able to offer students a unique opportunity to gain real insight and experience within the Creative sector while studying on the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design. Partnership working with local Universities, Museums and Galleries will also ensure that learners are at the forefront of what is happening within the Art and Design sector giving them a distinct advantage with UCAS and University applications.
Initially, students explore the main approaches and processes intrinsic to art, design and communication (including fine art, fashion, textiles, graphics, photography, video and 3D among many others) alongside a programme of drawing and investigation of contemporary art and design. This is followed by a concentrated period of focused work within the students own choice of specialism during which students are thoroughly supported and guided through their UCAS applications by dedicated, specialist tutors.
