This course is designed as a preparation for Art in different forms at University or Art School and gives you the chance to find your ‘voice’ as an artist and your area of specialisation. You’ll get the best tutoring from experts who have worked and still work in the industry and be able to use the print studio, 3D and ceramics workshops, photography studio and darkroom, as well as some really nice open studios and spaces. If you’re particularly interested in Adobe software, Print, 3D and ceramics, photography, fine art, fashion, graphics, illustration or character design then this is the course for you!
It’s a brilliant art school, and you might even get the chance to go on an all-expenses-paid, three-week visit to an art school in Malta, Germany or France!
Students from the Foundation Diploma and the Design degree at the University Centre Grimsby take part in a combined exhibition which is another exciting element to the course and encourages collaboration between these two sets of learners and invaluable exhibition experience.
