A minimum of two grade 3 (Ds) at GCSE. You may not have done Level 2 Art at school because of limited opportunity on your timetable or you may have gained a grade 3 (D). If so, you may be suited to this course. You will need to bring examples of your work with you to your interview.
This course will provide you with the opportunity to go on many trips to art galleries and exhibtions to enrich your learning. As well as this, you will be given the chance to exhibit your work outside of the classroom, in college shows and galleries but also in local and national events. We have had many students who have had their work shortlisted for a number of national awards, as well as one winning the student prize at the Ferens Open. Our Art Department is also heavily involved with our Upskilling Programme, so you will be able to develop your skills outside of lesson time with a range of workshops and activities.
This is the perfect course to set the basis for a Level 3 qualification in Art & Design.
Students who complete a qualification in Art go on to a wide variety of jobs. These can include: Artist, Interior Designer, Illustrator, Gallery Curator or Teacher, to name a few.
