After completion of the course students would normally progress onto a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design, Fashion or Multimedia, some students may seek employment.
You need a minimum of two GCSEs at Grade D (3) or above, preferably including Art or English.
You will study a series of exciting projects to explore a wide range of materials and methods to help you find your strengths in art & design practice. The course includes drawing, painting, illustration, graphics, three dimensional design, print making, textiles, art & design history and ceramics. You will be encouraged to specialise more in your chosen subject as the course progresses. This is an excellent programme to help you choose the right specialism within art & design for you.
Students have to provide their own materials and a contribution towards educational visits may be requested.
You will gain a portfolio of work from a wide range of specialist areas which will equip you for entry to a Level 3 Extended Diploma course and help pave the way for a future career as a professional artist or designer.

A Level Fine Art (Biology and English Literature)
Previous Institution: Priory School
Art at Shrewsbury Colleges Group is so expansive, it’s not just all about portraiture. Your ideas can be endless and the teachers allow you to explore all forms. I really enjoy A Level Art, it’s something I do at College and a hobby for me at home.
A Level Fine Art (Graphic Communication, Spanish)
Previous Institution: Bishop's Castle Community College
The A Level course is so much more in-depth than GCSE – which is great. I will be taking a gap year and travelling, then I would like to explore Interior Design as a career. My final pieces focused on architecture and windows using stencils and digital art. Digital art is something that I really appreciated learning about.
I have learnt many new techniques whilst on the printmaking course with Jay. We have been able to explore individual ideas with just the right amount of support and guidance in a relaxed and creative environment. I am excited to continue printing at home, having discovered a process I love.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design
Previous Institution: Priory School
Art is the subject that I felt most passionate about and I wanted to study it as a vocational course because I felt A Levels were not for me. I work on art whenever I can, at College and at home. I especially love working with charcoal and I was given the freedom to use this medium often.
