No previous experience necessary, just an interest in the subject area. Learners would benefit from attending each term to build skills in preparation for the term two and term three courses, although this is not a barrier to attending each term as a standalone course.
The course is delivered over 10 weeks, with one three-hour session per week.
There are several opportunities including other part time courses, Level 2 Art and Design, Level 3 Art and Design, and the Foundation Diploma Art and Design.
There is a studio fee for this course of £20.
