This course validated by The Open University.
The Foundation Degree in Art Enterprise (Graphic and Illustration) develops your graphics and illustration techniques and visual communication whilst equipping you with the specific employability skills to help you to get ahead and become a successful graphic designer / illustrator. You will undertake a range of client briefs and personal design projects to communicate with an audience, developing your critical awareness and visual language.
The course has excellent links to the creative industry and you will be using these from the outset by creating public exhibitions, working with artists and designers, gallerists and curators: selling your work, promoting yourself, visiting exhibitions, interviewing practitioners and organisations, and developing media campaigns.
We welcome applications from individuals who have studied Art, Graphics, Illustration, Print, Digital and Photography.
The Art Enterprise (Graphic Design and Illustration) Foundation Degree will be relocating to the new state-of-the-art Quarry Hill Campus for September 2019, where students will be right at the heart of Leeds' creative community.
There is an emphasis towards practical workshop learning, which underpin both context and industry relevant topics. The lecture programme will impart the necessary principles and concepts. Group work will allow students to develop their research, communication and teamwork skills. The seminars will be a mixture of student and tutor led sessions considering practical examples of the principles and concepts. Tutor and peer led reflective feedback form the basis of student learning programmes.
