Access to Higher Education: Art & Design

Many adult learners wish to find a route back into creative education. This may be to ‘brush up’ on skills or learn new ways of exploring media, techniques and processes or to progress to an undergraduate course.

Back to Access to Higher Education

Learners on the Access to Art and Design course will learn to experiment and explore visual language through workshops in order to produce independent and original outcomes. The course will include two and three dimensional activities across drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and printmaking.

Where will it take me?

After completing the Access to Art and Design learners may decide to exhibit independently as an artist or craftsperson, or progress to an art and design-related programme of study. Truro and Penwith College offers an HNC and HND in Art and Design, FdA Computer Games Design and Production, FdA and BA Silversmithing and Jewellery and an FdA and BA in Craft and Design. In addition to this, the proposed course acts as a progression route onto a significant number of BA programmes of study, throughout the country.
