Leisure courses have been running at City College for a number of years. Many of the students complete a range of different courses due to the ‘relaxed and friendly atmosphere’. Some students have progressed onto studying full time art and design courses turning their interest into a recognised qualification. Leisure and Pleasure courses offer the opportunity for learners to explore working with new skills and techniques.
This is the course for anyone is interested in learning more about the Mac basics
In Art and Design learning is centred around practical work which takes place in the dedicated studio space and in various workshops which include specific 3D and photographic Studios. In common with most art and design courses we make use a range of teaching methods, crits/reviews of work, seminars and tutorials. In each session, in every class, tutors are present to guide and support your work and your ideas and help you progress and achieve. We want you to get into the habit of discussing, of debating, your own work and ideas and the work of others. Fostering and sharing a positive, supportive and open learning environment and culture is very important to us and to your success on the course.
It is the responsibility of the student to purchase materials they may need, i.e. DVD’s
