Course Outline

This course is ideal for both beginners and the more advanced client. These skills will then be applied to a Fine Art, Fashion and Textile Design, Graphic Design and 3D/Architectural Design project. Emphasis is placed on idea development and concept building. You will be given professional support throughout this process, which will then lead to the selection of a few ideas to develop further.

The London Art Portfolio Preparation courses are a fantastic way to meet new people in the creative arts. You will also extend your knowledge in Critical and Contextual Studies learning more about historical and contemporary artists and designers. On other occasions we visit special events for inspiration such as: The Chelsea Flower Show, London Architecture Festival, Henley Regatta, Chinese New Year, Kew Gardens, Stately Homes, or could propose an idea of your own if so wish.

There is so much happening in London the whole year round!
