Year 12Year 1 focuses on the first 3 modules for this course. This will involve a student-led module on Art and Design in Context, where students explore an area of their choice. Another module will be Using Digital technology in Graphic Design, this module will provide a strong foundation, developing digital and graphic design skills using industry standard software, as well as breaking down the basics of Graphic Design. The last module is in Art and Design Illustration. This module is both physical and digital in its undertaking and lets students examine and create work to a real-world brief, applying the knowledge developed through the year.
Year 13This year starts with a free module, where students will have a voice in selecting a module from a selection provided by the tutor that teaches them an area they wish to examine. In the current year we are exploring Digital Photography as this provides key skills for the rest of the course. This could be anything from Painting, Photography and Craft styled modules, all based around briefs. The final 2 modules for the course are heavily industry focused and focus on applying all the practical skills. These culminate in 2 modules: Design for Advertising and Branding and Corporate Design.
