Visual Arts Kit List

Our Art & Design course has been carefully planned to equip you with an arsenal of skills and experience, allowing you to flourish as a professional creative. Our mission is to enable you to unlock your potential within the arts-world – experiment with your ideas, express yourself creatively and collaborate with others. On top of this, you will enhance your theoretical knowledge – preparing you for progression into employment or university.

In preparation for your September-start, please see below a list of equipment that we would encourage you to purchase for your studies;

  • A4 hardback notebook

  • A set of drawing pencils and chalks

  • A set of paintbrushes

  • A set of acrylic paints (primary colours) both watercolours and gouache

  • Craft knife / scissors

  • And something to put it all in! (a fishing box / tool box)

Please do not spend lots of money on these, most of this is available in Wilkinson’s, The Range or Poundland. On top of this, your course equipment costs can be claimed back through our bursary scheme (for eligible students) if you require financial support. A bursary application will be posted to you in the summer.

Anything else that you may already have, any art equipment or materials – or even cameras or graphics tablets etc., feel free to do so.
