The HND in Art and Design (Art Practice pathway) is an Illustration, Drawing and Printmaking course developed to enable its students to interrogate 2D practices across a range of both traditional and cutting-edge processes. With a focus on hands-on, process-based expertise, the course is designed to develop your skills and knowledge of a broad range of primarily 2D practices with interrogation into each method so you can test, develop and refine work to understand the various intricacies of each method of production.

With drawing studios and a fully equipped print-room, you will have the opportunity of learning from experienced tutors, who are industry experts and dedicated to their disciplines, knowing both traditional hand rendered techniques, through to cutting edge digital practices.

In year 1, across the first semester you will be introduced to new production techniques that include studio based drawing practices such as Life Drawing, still life and Observational studies, and well as working on location in contemporary 'en plein air' and site specific practice, along with broader practices that encompass movement sound and conceptual drawing methodologies.

As your skill base grows you will investigate the methods of refining your work across a range of outcome pathways and explore the use of printmaking in its broadest sense, to gain an in-depth knowledge of its potential.

As you progress through the second semester of year 1, your attention will turn to the professionalisation of your work where you can relate your practice to its place in industry and find your contemporaries.

In year 2, in the first semester along with a broad range of practical workshops in drawing, print and illustrative processes, you will begin professionalising your work and apply your skills to a range of industry outcomes. By testing and refining your skills you will deepen your understanding of your methods and processes including advanced life drawing, and intaglio print and graphic led methods. Due to our experimental approaches you can really become an expert in your field and create a unique body of work.

At Level 5 (year 2) study we aim for you to develop as a specialist, so your briefs will allow you to respond to what drives your work, and focus on what matters most to you. As this course is broad and experimental in its approach, you will be able to develop your work into a range of outcomes depending on your own personal direction.

Your work in the second semester of year 2 will help shape and hone your work further as you will focus on advancing your practice towards a final body of work. Your self-negotiated brief will allow you to define your methodology and realise your personal aims.

Alongside technical delivery, you will also respond to live industry briefs so you are able to test your working knowledge and its place in industry. At the Chelsea Centre our newly established Creative Agency will allow you respond to briefs from a range of partners to build a unique and personal portfolio

Within this professionalisation of your practice you will be able to consider various finishing approaches including bookbinding, framing and curatorial practice; and with entrepreneurship sitting alongside your practical development your will be able to analyse your approach and outcomes to enable you to progress into a range of industry and educational pathways.

By the end of the programme you will be able to understand your place within the industry, and learn the standards and processes needed to achieve. You will also have the knowledge needed to either progress into further Higher Education courses such as the BA (Hons) Top-up programme here at Chelsea, or externally; or progress directly into work within your chosen industry pathway.
