The Level 1 Diploma in Art, Design and Media is a one-year course. The students explore and develop their creativity, whilst learning new skills. With support and encouragement from the Level 1 team, students have produced project work across the year based on; Painting, Drawing, Photography, Model Making, Fashion, Print, Animation and Film Making, and completed the year by producing a Final Major project (FMP) specific to their chosen area of interest.


The FMP is titled ‘Telling Tales’. The project focused around a series of quotes enabling students to choose a quote to develop for their project. Students needed to demonstrate the ability to plan, research, experiment, make, problem solve and evaluate.
