N.C.A.D. Audit Credit Module:

Drawing/Print/Mixed Media




This audit credit module is one of the modules available to study in order to gain the Visual Arts Practice Certificate from N.C.A.D.  

The prospectus for this course can be found here.




This part time module is just one of the many modules that students may take in order to gain their Visual Arts Practice Certificate and thus be eligible to apply for the part time Diploma in Art and Design; it is also an enjoyable standalone course for anyone interested in broadening their knowledge and skills in the visual arts.  The course is split into two modules where you practice in both print and drawing within a contemporary context.  At 22 weeks of length, and with 55 hours of tuition, I believe this course to be very good value for money.


As I took a few years off between my completion of the Drawing & Visual Investigation Certificate (D.V.I.) and then submitting a portfolio for the Diploma in Art & Design, I found this module to be a great re-cap on many of the techniques and approaches that I learnt during the D.V.I. Certificate.  The course also helped me to build a greater body of work for my portfolio application to the Diploma year.  I had no previous experience in printmaking and so this was an ideal course for me to develop and learn more processes before entering into the Diploma year.

1. Drawing & Mixed Media
