UAL Level 2 Diploma in Art & Design

This course is a fast paced, creatively rewarding, hands on practical subject. In Art and Design, you will explore how to successfully express your ideas visually and how to develop your practical skills in different artistic techniques and processes.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

The Level 2 Art and Design Diploma encourages you to be experimental with your approach and to explore lots of visual ideas which will lead to you making exciting two dimensional and three-dimensional finished work. You will have the opportunity to explore and discover new ways of working with methods of production and specialist techniques in areas such as drawing, painting, printmaking, graphic design, textiles and sculpture. You will also research the lives and work of other selected artists and designers related to each project. This research will inspire and inform your own creative outcomes alongside developing your verbal and written analytical skills and use of formal art and design language.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The Level 2 Art and Design Diploma provides the perfect steppingstone to further study by engaging students in a wide range of media. It enables you to build your skills, knowledge and portfolio in preparation for progression to the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art and Design or alternatively a range of other qualifications offered at the College.

The course is taught through practical projects and assignments. The projects cover a range of art skills such as drawing, painting, printmaking and crafts such as textiles. You will produce individual outcomes through guided research, ideas, development, media experimentation and evaluation. During the course, we also make research visits to art galleries and exhibitions.

You will have the opportunity to exhibit your artwork at different points throughout the year, which then culminates in a large external exhibition of the whole art department in May.

WHERE WILL IT TAKE ME?

This course will give you the ideal foundation of skills to prepare for further study at Level 3, such as the Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design, or a range of other programmes within the College. During the course you will create a portfolio of diverse work that can be taken to interviews.

Assessment Arrangements

The diploma is made up of eight units, each with its own assessment criteria. Each completed practical project is graded against a unit. All students complete a final personal project which is graded pass, merit or distinction. The grade for this final unit gives the overall grade for the course.

entry requirements

In addition to Level 2 entry requirements, an interest in drawing and making would be advantageous.

Information & Support

We encourage all students to spend their own time sketching, designing or making things. Visiting galleries and exhibitions is an excellent way to see a wide range of artists’ and designers’ work which can then be used to inspire your own creativity.

Working within the Student Services area, the Student Support team will see you on a one-to-one basis and offer advice and guidance on financial, personal and emotional issues. A professional team of staff work together with your personal tutor to support you so that you can successfully complete your course and recognise pathways to progression after leaving College.
