This Art, Craft & Design course is designed to help learners develop their skills in drawing, painting, 3D studies and life drawing, using a variety of media and materials including monoprint, pastels, charcoal etc.
While preparing a high quality portfolio, learners will also have the opportunity to complete a QQI Level 5 Award in Art with the potential to gain a maximum of 390 CAO points for entry into third level institutions. By doing this course, learners are better prepared for degree programmes as it enables them to make informed decisions regarding college and course choices. It also gives them the confidence in their ability to succeed in a higher educational environment.

I would recommend Art, Craft & Design at SCFE to anyone who wants to study a related subject at degree level. The variety of modules is a great asset to your portfolio. Although I did not have a Leaving Cert on entry, I achieved 400 CAO points with the full QQI award, which, in combination with my portfolio, enabled me to gain entry to NCAD. I completed an honours degree in Art & Design History & Visual Communication before going on to start my own design and illustration practice.
