What will I Study?

The main emphasis is on personal development and building up of a portfolio, both for assessment and progression onto higher levels. This is achieved through the development of drawing and painting skills and gradual development of more individual ways of working. Artists’ work, both traditional and contemporary, plays an important role in the development of coursework and thereby encourages the students to broaden their subject knowledge and understanding. Specialist staff provide regular constructive feedback and, as the course develops, students develop an increasingly confident and independent approach to their studies. Students would be expected to develop skills in working independently, both in and out of timetabled sessions.
