Art & Design – Graphic Communication

(Classes are timetabled alongside Fine Art)

Why Study Graphic Communication?

The art industry is the third largest income generator in the UK and there are numerous possibilities for art-based careers. Many of our students go on to follow courses in non-related art subjects and take with them transferable skills and a greater aesthetic awareness. Students choose from a range of themes, use of media and approaches relevant to Graphic Communication. The aim of this course is to provide maximum flexibility and will be tailored to meet students’ particular strengths and interests.
