Why improve your design skills?

The compilation of a comprehensive portfolio and sketchbook for your school studies is a time-consuming process. Blocks of uninterrupted time to develop ideas, experiment, and reflect are often hard for students to find in a busy school timetable. This Arts and Digital Design course helps you find this time, making it possible for you to create an engaging portfolio that reflects your abilities.

Enhance and develop your portfolio

The Arts and Digital Design course will provide you with the time, the space, and a multitude of resources to enable you to enhance, refine, and develop your portfolio.

The course provides you with:

  • expert guidance from highly experienced art teachers
  • full access and studio time in a brand new, well-equipped state of the art studio
  • inspirational visits to museums and galleries
  • tuition as required in a multitude of techniques
  • experience mounting and exhibiting work
  • the opportunity to meet and work with practising local artists

Course overview

Studio-time: You will be able to dedicate whole mornings or afternoons to work on a particular project whilst benefiting from advice and guidance of our teachers.

New techniques: You will have the opportunity to learn and develop a wide range of artistic techniques including:

  • darkroom and digital photographing, editing, and displaying
  • 2D drawing, painting, printmaking, illustrating, designing, and exhibiting
  • 3D textiles, fashion and casting

Inspirational visits: There are many places in Oxford to view the work of other artists to seek inspiration.
