Dear prospective A level Graphic Communication student,
We are pleased that you are considering joining the course. This is an innovative and exploratory design course and involves working with a broad range of digital media including Adobe Creative Suite alongside traditional techniques like drawing, spray painting and screen-printing.
In year one, you will explore ideas and develop skills through creative problem solving, risk taking and engagement with cultural, social and political issues. You will have the opportunity visually to explore, challenge and develop your own ideas and opinion on significant themes and issues.
I have included a few design challenges to give you a taste of some of the lessons before September. There are a range of different challenges designed to be completed with either a pencil and paper, phone or tablet. Bring any completed tasks to enrolment to show us what you’ve been working on. If you have any questions at all, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
We look forward to meeting you in September.
Ms Burne & The Art and Design Department
