Develop fundamental skills in art and design in order to progress into further 3rd Level study.Our Art and Design foundation course is an interdisciplinary programme that introduces the learner to a broad range of areas in the discipline of Art & Design.
- Our one-year Level 6 Art and Design foundation course introduces the learner to a variety of areas in art, design and communication. The course is an excellent foundation for any Level 8 design award, introducing a broad range of design disciplines in Animation, Ceramics, Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design/Architecture, Photography and Video, Textile Design and Silk Screen Printing before students choose their pathway.
- The key abilities contributing to success in the programme are creativity in design, competence in communication in a variety of media, an ability to draw with a technical understanding and organisation. Griffith's art courses in Dublin draw in candidates that have a keen interest in the cultural and social factors in design, creative expression and innovation with a capacity for both independent work and teamwork.
The purpose of this award is to:
- Foster the student’s creativity through exploration and experimentation and develop a broad range of Art and Design skills.
Offer students own study pathways, thorough project electives in Interior Design/Architecture, Fashion Design, Graphic Design and Illustration and Animation.
Create an Art and Design Portfolio required for further study pathway progression to Level 8 BA (Hons) programme.
