UAL Level 3 Art and Design Year 1

The Level 3 Diploma in Art and Design is an exciting and innovative course exploring disciplines such as ceramics, textiles, graphic design, printing, fine art and 3D materials such as wire, plaster, jewellery making etc.

The Course is underwritten by University of Art, London which has a reputation as a world class university and was ranked 2nd in the world for Art and Design in the 2021 QS World University Rankings.

The level 3 Diploma is the first Year of a 2 Year course which has been designed to provide students with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to progress into degree level study in art and design or into employment within the Creative Industries.

This work is of the 2021 cohort’s final project in exploring materials, research processes and techniques. This is an opportunity for each student to select, explore and produce art work in a specialist area of art and design which appeals to them. Each student writes their own brief and produces work which is very personal to them as individuals.

The theme of this year’s final project was that of ‘Brighter Days’. This was influenced by the ongoing pandemic and aimed to encourage thought processes towards happier times and positivity. The aim was to make the audience smile and to reflect happy times in the mind of each young artist. Influences were taken from memories, a favourite place, a special person, an activity that is particularly enjoyed or a special food, Students were also influenced by their favourite artists and art works. The body of work put forward from each individual reflects their thorough and sustained creative research and innovative design processes.
