The Art & Design Level 3 Extended Diploma is the progression pathway that offers motivated learners the opportunity to develop their art and design portfolios for successful entry to the Level 4 Foundation Course and other art courses at Kensington and Chelsea College or University.
The course is structured with units which cover:
- Characteristics and contexts in art and design;
- Preparation for progression;
- Engaging with an audience;
- Project proposal and realisation
The course is project based and students are given encouragement and support to develop their personal ideas. There is also a strong commitment to the development of drawing skills as a tool for the communication of ideas.
The Extended Diploma builds on student’s knowledge, skills, understanding and the confidence required to work independently and to direct their own learning.
The course also provides opportunities for those who are intrigued and motivated by art and design to explore, develop and test their creativity within a structured programme.
Our aim is to provide a sound base of skills and knowledge, while enhancing self-confidence and revealing the potential career opportunities within the sector.
