Art and Design Level 2

This practical course will help you gain a broader understanding of the Art and Design industry, through workshops, demonstrations and live briefs. You will learn about many of the techniques and disciplines used, such as: Mark Making, Print, Illustration, 3D, and Textiles.

The Extended Certificate, equivalent to two GCSEs, is for learners who are looking to study art and design as part of a one-year course alongside other areas of study.

As part of the course, you will explore, develop and produce a variety of pieces, which will be collated into an art portfolio.
