Level 3/4 Foundation Dip in Art & Design


Mixed Media, Collage, Digital

2023/2024


This is a collection of both developmental drawings and sketches from my workbooks and some finished pieces from my Foundation Diploma.


Most of the work featured here are from one day workshops from Unit 1 and Unit 2.

Unit 2 is our Pathway Unit and the majority of this selection is from my Narrative Pathway.


This has been a really good course which I have enjoyed a lot. It has give me more room to grow, experiment, try new media and ideas, and collaborate with others. This was something I have had little opportunity for in the past, and it was a good experience.


Media: Markers, Fineliners, colour pencils, chalk pastel, collage/magazine paper, acrylic paint, posca pens, washi tape.


*At the beginning of January we were set a four week project to create a 'zine' as the last part of our Narrative Pathway. This could be in any medium of our choice. I choice digital. The project is not quite finished and I will upload the working drawings here and the finished work into my digital section after the half term, mid February.

Level 3 Dip/Ext.Dip Illustration


Mixed Media, Collage, Digital

2022/2023

This is a collection of finished pieces from Units 5 and 6 of my Level 3 Dip/Ext. Diploma in Illustration. It was entirely studio based, no workshops or trips and brief/project led working in isolation. Unfortunately there was little opportunity on the course for still life and observational drawing, but I did my best, so I have been working hard to include more in my personal work.


Media: Markers, Fineliners, colour pencils, chalk pastel, collage/magazine paper, acrylic paint, posca pens, washi tape.
