Huddersfield New College has shared more about how students on the BTEC Level 3 Art and Design course have recently been gaining a taste of the subject at degree level via a series of workshops hosted by the University of Huddersfield.
Over the course of a number of weeks students on our full time Art and Design course have been given the valuable opportunity to undertake workshops in areas such as Architecture, Drawing and Photography using facilities at the university.
Under the direction of lecturers, students have been given an opportunity to gain an experience of what studying the subject at degree level involves, whilst stretching and challenging their skills and creativity as part of a range of projects which have led to pieces that they can use in their portfolios.
The gallery below illustrates just some of the fantastic work they have produced, and some of the activities they took part in during their workshops.
Luke Ingham, Teacher of Art and Design comments: “Many of our students intend to progress to Art and Design at university, and these workshops have given them a flavour of what degree level study involves, whilst stretching their creative vision and skills with some stunning results! These workshops have extended their learning, and given our students a real taste of what they can expect from a variety of specialisms and careers. As well as gaining new skills, many of our students have shared how the experience has given them real food for thought about their next steps.”
