If you’re unsure about which College course is best for you, but you are interested in some kind of creative field such as art, design, music or drama, this short programme is designed to give you a taster of what it would be like to work in the creative sector.
On this course you will spend time trying out art and design techniques, drawing, painting, working with clay and other 3D materials. You will have a basic introduction to graphic design and get a chance to use industry-standard software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. You will also get a chance to sample printing, photography, fashion design, music and drama. To do well on this course you will need to be a naturally creative person – perhaps you like drawing or doodling, maybe you’re good at making things, or you have a passion for photography, song-writing, making music or performance.
As part of this course you will also develop skills in problem solving, personal thinking, communication and working with others, which are transferable to whichever course you decide to pursue in the future.
