If you are keen to develop your creative skills, explore a wide range of specialist areas, learn new techniques, and challenge your imagination to discover where your creative talents lie? The Foundation Diploma course provides a year of practical study, enabling you to make informed decisions about your future prospects as an artist or designer, as well as possible applications to degree courses.
The course is broad-based, starting with a series of workshops that embrace a wide range of materials, processes and techniques. As the year progresses you will aim to specialise in a particular discipline of your choice. The emphasis throughout will be on research experimentation and creative exploration.
Through lectures you will study the work of other artists and designers relevant to your own studio practice, this will be supported by an (optional) study trip abroad to visit museums and contemporary galleries. Life drawing is taught on a weekly basis in order to help develop your observational skills and knowledge of various materials.
