Coventry School of Art and Design has taught art and design for over 150 years and our award-winning faculty will share the lessons learned from their significant experience of global academic, creative, industrial and commercial environments. We have a successful track record including Oscar nominee Chris Townsend, BAFTA winner Amy Dodd and Turner Prize nominee artist George Shaw.
Internationally acclaimed for their own creative practice, our faculty staff have exhibited in Berlin, Athens, Helsinki, Bucharest, Istanbul, Tokyo, Linz, Zurich, Zagreb, Gijon and London. This course continues to provide illustrative and animated input into many areas of professional practice including the publishing, scientific, technical, marketing, publicity and advertising, medical and cultural arenas; all of which provides opportunities to hep you stay abreast of emerging trends and the challenges of contemporary professional practice.
This practice-based course provides opportunities to develop a broad range of traditional and digital skills, including drawing, etching, screen-printing, typography, film effects, and working with sound; all using industry-standard practices and toolsets.
Your studies will take place in a studio environment with access to an extensive range of specialist facilities, including laser cutters, 3D rapid prototyping, screen printing, computer suites and clay modelling to enable you to produce original informative artefacts. We particularly encourage you to creatively explore emergent and mixed media, considering these art forms in their broadest application: from films and games design to advertising, training videos and technical illustrations as used in science, engineering and medicine.
