  • Course description
    FdA Art and Design


    Prepares students for progression to a variety of specialist art and design study options, including BA/BSc Honours Degrees, EDEXCEL Higher National Diplomas and teacher training courses. Students study for one year through three stages:

        * Stage one: the course introduces basic skills within the practice of art and design. This includes working in both 2D and 3D with a range of basic material, media and methods. Students are introduced to drawing in its broadest sense, developing visual language skills and learning how to develop ideas
        * Stage two: a programme of specialist studio activities, including fine art, graphic design, 2D and 3D multi-disciplinary design, provide an opportunity for students to confirm that the chosen specialist subject is appropriate
        * Stage three: gives an opportunity for personal preference and maximising potential. A course of lectures and seminars underpins the practical studio activities, introducing historical and current trends, directions and contexts in which artists and designers operate.

    Specialist subjects include: fine art painting, sculpture, print, multimedia, graphic design, computer graphics, illustration, surface decoration, textiles, fashion, contour, footwear, furniture, product, theatre design, jewellery, spatial design, contextual studies and lens-based media. IT and workshop skills are embedded into the Foundation qualification. An element of English Language is included in the Foundation programme for international students.
