Visual and Performing Arts: Access to Art & Design

Kirti Patel, former engineer and business manager, is also on the Access to Art and Design course.

He became disillusioned with business life and took the opportunity of being made redundant (fate, he calls it) to pursue his passion for art full time.

“I’ve always done evening classes and now I am doing my first proper qualification spending time making art. The course has given me confidence and the staff gives you such an insight into the art world.”

As he speaks, Kirti works with a glue gun piecing together dozens of lenses from old pairs of spectacles to make the wings of a giant insect.

“The course makes doing art easy as long as you are committed, hardworking and above all, passionate.”

All our courses are available for adults aged 19 and over only.

We can only accept students aged 18 and over on the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design, Fashion Foundation and Media Foundation.
