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 and design studies. Emphasis will be placed on the development of drawing and observational skills through studio and location work.

A tutor skilled and experienced in portfolio teaching delivers this course and participants are obliged to undertake personal projects outside of course hours. Our period of study is a preparatory programme only and therefore students should not assume that attending this course would give them an advantage over others who wish to access the NCAD full time degree courses.
