If you love Art and Design; you get excited about finding creative solutions to problems, enjoy working with your hands, investigating why and how other artists’ and designers’ work, then this is the course for you.

The Level 3 Extended Diploma Art and Design is an exciting two year course; in the first year you are encouraged to explore all areas of the arts, to achieve the Diploma. You will begin to determine your specialist pathways when you progress onto the Extended Diploma, in the second year. At the start of each year you are allocated your own studio space, which you can make your own and use as a base throughout the year.

In the first year you will take part in a wide range of practical workshops in our studios, in order to develop your skills in drawing, painting, working with mixed media, graphics and digital media, textiles, printmaking, ceramics, photography and 3 dimensional work. Projects and workshops are linked to relevant creative careers, to help you understand where your skills might be used, in the creative industries. The year is completed with a Final Project and a Summer Exhibition.

The second year is an opportunity for you to decide on your specialist pathway, such as Fashion, Textiles, Photography, Fine Art, Graphic Design etc. All the work you have done to date is organised into a portfolio, either for job and apprenticeship applications, or university entrance via UCAS. Focused support for progression is given throughout the Autumn term, whilst practical projects continue to provide opportunities for you to take greater responsibility for your own practice, including decision making and time management. There will be an emphasis on projects negotiated between you and your tutors. This year culminates in an extensive Final Major Project, which is exhibited in the Summer Exhibition.

Underpinning all aspects of the course is an engaging programme of contextual studies and you will take part in gallery and location visits, written assignments and tutorials throughout the course, as well as relevant work experience, employer-led projects, commissions and exhibitions.

  What You Will Learn

During this two year course you will not only learn new skills and techniques, you will also learn things about yourself as an artist, designer and as an individual. What are you passionate about? What do you want your art to communicate? How can you fit your creative skills into a job that you love? You will leave with the skills needed to become part of the fastest growing area of the UK economy.

“The Creative Industries contribute £111.7 billion gross valued added to the UK economy… which is greater then the automotive, aerospace, life sciences and oil and gas industries combined.” https://www.creativeindustriesfederation.com/statistics

  Entry Requirements

You will need Four GCSEs at grade C or 4, including English or Mathematics. We also accept equivalent qualifications e.g. a completed Level 2 Diploma. It is helpful if you have studied an Art or Design based subject prior to coming to this course (graphics, textiles, art, photography, product design) but not essential. It is more important that you have a passion for being creative and a willingness to try new techniques and processes, and explore and experiment and see what you are capable of.

  Assessment

Assessment takes place through on going formative assessments, ( when constructive advice is given to help you improve) throughout the two years and two summative assessments ( final graded mark and feedback ) in Year 1 and two summative assessments in Year 2.

The work is 100% marked internally and the work is then externally moderated via a standards verification process. There are no external exams.

Alice’s fashion designs have been seen on celebrities such as Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Jessie J, she also collaborates with some major manufacturers including Care Bears, My Little Pony and Hello Kitty.

“I knew I wanted to be a fashion designer and the course at Camborne covered lots of different disciplines, which was great as it gave me a wonderful overview of all the various paths open to me and I particularly remember enjoying life drawing. From there I was accepted by The University of Plymouth to study fashion design and on completion of my degree I then moved back to Cornwall and got a job at a high-end fashion boutique, which introduced me to the spectrum of fashion.

My goal was to have my designs on the catwalk at the Clothes Show, so I worked hard, researched a lot, got signed by a portfolio agency and was then contacted by the stylist who wanted me to be involved in the designs for the opening sequence to the show. From there I received work from the X-Factor, Got to Dance and worked with Vogue on a Range Rover launch. "
