Art Taster for Sixth Form Students

5th June 2008 5:27pm - Return to press releases

A group of sixth form students found out about a new higher education art and design course during a free taster day at East Riding College on Monday.

The students from Headlands School and Community Science College sampled photography, life model drawing, paper sculptures and contemporary textiles techniques at the College?s St Mary?s Walk campus in Bridlington.

The taster session is part of the College?s drive to promote the new Post-18 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design course.
The full-time course will run for the first time from September and is set at a level higher than A-level which can help as preparation for people wanting to progress to a degree course.

Val Quigley, head of curriculum for art, design and media at the College, said: ?The course is ideal for people who simply want to learn more about art and design or who want to enhance their skills to strengthen their application for a degree.

?The students from Headlands School were really enthusiastic and interested in what they learnt during the taster session.?
