We offer a wide range of courses in Art & Design. Whether you want to improve your watercolour skills or develop a portfolio of artwork to gain access to university, we have a class to suit your needs and aspirations.
You will be supported throughout your course by our experienced tutors who bring an abundance of experience and creative flair to their classes. Many exhibit and sell their own work, enabling them to encourage you to develop your confidence and abilities.
Classes are run at our Community Learning Centres across the Bolton borough and at our main Deane Road campus, with day and evening classes available.
On completion of one of our Art & Design courses, you could progress to the next level. We have strong links with the University of Bolton, so there are many opportunities to progress to one of the many Animation or Graphic Design programmes they offer, leading to a host of careers including animator, artist, illustrator or games designer.

I've been introduced to a range of artists and materials so I've really started to develop my techniques. The tutoring is good and I've received supportive critiques of my work. Long-term, I'd like to use what I've learnt and hold a series of exhibitions.

I like the photography and textiles part of the course best. I was really proud when my work was displayed at the Arts Showcase, some of my friends even came to see it. Short term, I want to progress to Level 3 and continue getting distinctions. Long term, I want to become an Architect.
