The Certificate of Art and Creativity programme is a hands-on, practical programme for those with little or no practical art experience and/or those who wish to widen their creative practice and build key skills. The programme is a structured introduction to a wide range of art and creativity ideas and applications.

You will complete an introductory section (compulsory) and then select majors and minors from the courses for the remainder of your programme. Please note that at this level your majors must be chosen from drawing, painting or 3D. These choices determine how much of your time will be spent working on particular activities and what your outcomes should be. They will guide the classes you choose to attend and the resources you choose to engage with. You can read more about the courses, or subject areas, we offer here.

The Certificate programme is 6 months full-time (equivalent 30 hours per week), or one year part-time (equivalent 15 hours per week).
