Art & Design

What is art? What a nebulous thing to try and define. Any range or product of creative human activity can be defined as art. Most well associated are the visual arts - painting, sculpture etc.

The design is the preliminary planning, when the first seeds of what may become a great work of art are sown. Being taught to come up with the ideas for a great piece of art work are as important as the art creation itself.
It's a diverse area, which can be tailored to what you want to study. History of Arts, Fine Art, Sculpture, Fashion Design, Garden Art, Exhibitions, Media Studies, Graphic Design, Musical and Theatre Art - all module options.
