Level 2 Certificate Creative Craft - Art & Design

Adult Further Education
What is the course about?
This adult art and design course builds on the skills acquired on the Level 1 Award in Creative Craft (Art and Design) course. You will be encouraged to use a range of materials, equipment, and techniques to develop your own creative techniques. As the course progresses, you will be encouraged to develop a more personalised approach to art and design. This could be within drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, or photography. You will also be introduced to creative enterprises and employment opportunities within the creative arts industries. You will develop, create, present, and evaluate your artworks within the Warrington & Vale Royal College art exhibition, which takes place at the end of the year.
Why should I choose the course?
This course is suitable for students who have completed the Level 1 Award in Creative Craft (Art and Design) and would like to develop their skills further, as well as those who have past experience within the arts and wish to enhance their skills whilst achieving a nationally recognised formal qualification. We have an extremely well-established art department at Warrington & Vale Royal College with highly experienced and specialised teaching staff.
What will I learn?
You will explore a range of art and design processes including drawing, painting, printing, sculpture, textiles, and photography. You will also learn about various materials and techniques as well as creative enterprises and employment opportunities within the creative arts industries. An increasingly personalised approach will be encouraged, culminating in an end of course exhibition.
What will the course lead on to?
Upon completion of this course, you can progress onto the Level 3 Foundation Diploma Art and Design course to further your skills.
Are there any links with industry and university?
We regularly have guest speakers and practicing artists who deliver talks to our students. We also run a range of local and national trips to various galleries and museums. We work closely with external agencies and employers to develop ‘live briefs’ which allow our students to explore real life projects. Recent projects have allowed students to work with culture Warrington, Warrington Museum, Lion Salt Works, and Blakemere Craft Centre.
What support is available?
We have a team of staff dedicated to providing learning support if required, as well as a Welfare Team that is on hand to offer guidance, support and help when needed. Additionally, eligible students can access a wide range of finance and funding support to help them during their time at college.
