Art and Design Level 3 at Woking College

Course description

This course encourages students who are creative and innovative. You will learn to work to realistic briefs that allow you to explore 2D and 3D disciplines. In the second year you will be able to specialise in combinations of design, fine art or multimedia. The main purpose of the qualification is to prepare students who wish to progress to higher education in Art & Design or wish to enter a work placement in a creative industry. There will be professional elements to the course which will involve working with visiting artists and with our local gallery. At the end of the year, you’ll have the chance to exhibit your work in our Art & Design show at The Lightbox gallery in Woking.
