NQ Art and Design: Portfolio Skills

This course is aimed at students who wish to gain entry onto an art-based subject within the College but do not have a portfolio of artwork to support their application. It is also suitable for people returning to education who enjoyed Art and Design based subjects, including Product Design or Graphic Communication at school, and wish to rebuild a portfolio to support an application to a creative course. 

Throughout the course, guest professional artists and designers deliver skills based workshops.
