Why Study Art and Design?
· To develop a visual and design awareness
· To encourage the development of visual discrimination and aesthetic judgement
· To facilitate progression to further education in this subject
· To improve general knowledge and cultural awareness.
Art and Design provides intellectual and academic experience within a predominantly practical activity.
Students develop the ability to think clearly, form opinions, research information, prepare thoroughly for projects and meet deadlines. Critical, contextual and cultural elements will be a relevant part of all courses. All students will be encouraged to develop their individual strengths and interests and will be required to produce a portfolio of coursework displaying their emotional and intellectual responses to a variety of demands.
The projects are devised by the Art and Design Department and are exciting, relevant, thought provoking and accessible by all.
