Industry Expert for Foundation Art

“The Foundation Diploma in Art, Design and Media is a preparatory step for students who have completed their A Levels, an Extended Diploma at College, or mature students with a creative background who have ambitions to pursue a Creative Arts degree at university.

“It is a fantastic course, and we have an experienced team of teaching professionals who will create bespoke support for you in your learning pathway across the different creative mediums whether fine art, film, sculpture, textiles, design or illustration. The course enables you to be highly experimental and encourages you to take risks within a specialist pathway of your choice.

“We enjoy exceptional links with industry, and benefit from the support of an influential network of successful College alumni in the Creative Arts sector to develop your knowledge in the field including at Super Slow Way, Blaze Arts and In-Situ. Our students gain experience by supporting the British Textile Biennial and the national Festival of Making.

“More and more, artists are required to have a multitude of skills. You are encouraged to broaden your skillset through the Foundation Diploma, particularly as community involvement is paramount to the success of many creative projects that take place through artist residencies in the modern world.”
