Step 3: Choose your programme level
Do you want to learn new skills and techniques or just begin with the basics and build up confidence as you go?
- I want to start with the basics!
The New Zealand Certificate in Creativity (Level 4) is an open entry programme that focus's on exploration, experimentation, building skills and identifying possibilities in art and creativity. It 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.
- I want to add new skills and techniques to my existing art practice!
The New Zealand Diploma in Creativity (Level 5) focuses on increasing coherence and technical skills. Students develop a sound skill base for their creative processes and interests and produce work in line with their own goals. Students enrolling in the Diploma programme will be asked to submit a portfolio as recognition of prior learning.
- I want to take my practice to the next level!
The goal of The New Zealand Diploma in Creativity (Level 6) programme is to increase coherence and technical skills, develop a sound basis of your own creative processes and interests, sharpen personal focus (self-direction) and produce work in line with your own goals.
- I want to engage with materials and examination of the process related to art-making!
The Diploma of Art and Creativity (Advanced Level 7) builds on your existing skill base, focusing on art as a process. You will engage with ideas and practices that emphasize the materials, methods and operations crucial to the meaning of the work. Please contact our Admissions team to discuss the requirements for the programme.
