On Thursday 22nd June 2023 WM College held the annual private view for the 2022/23 Foundation Art and Design Diploma(FAD) end of year exhibition. The exhibition is the finale of an explorative and exciting year for FAD learners.
The one-year UAL validated course provides learners with the opportunity to explore many different creative disciplines. During the final term learners hone their skills and choose an area of creative specialism for the final major project. Artworks created for the final major project are displayed in the end of year show, providing a great opportunity for learners to gain an understanding of how best to display their work, develop curatorial skills and learn promotional tactics. This year we’ve seen some incredible artworks produced from large scale installations to Islamic inspired paper sculptures to intricate illustrations and textile work.
During this Level 3 qualification learners are encouraged to explore ideas and processes that underpin professional practice in all the creative industries and build a strong portfolio of work. The course also develops learners’ creative practice ready for entry to university, art school, training, and employment.
WM College is very proud of the 2022/23 Foundation Art and Design Diploma cohort who are set to achieve great things in their creative futures. Below are just a few examples of what lies ahead for this year’s learners.
If you’re looking to explore your creative practice and jump start your career within the creative industries join us for our next Foundation Art and Design Diploma Talk & Tour on Wednesday 4 October 2023, 2-4 pm. More information can be found here.
