This course is suitable for individuals (both school leavers and mature students) preparing a portfolio for entry into third level art and design colleges. Portfolio preparation focuses on the development of visual ideas and skills leading to the creation of a body of work suitable for application to first year art/design studies. Emphasis will be placed on the development of drawing and observational skills through studio and location work.

Participants are obliged to undertake personal projects outside of course hours and these will be monitored on a day-to-day basis.
