Naomi Lang Communications and Marketing Officer for Plymouth College of Art
Plymouth College of Art’s origins date back to 1856 and it is one of a handful of art colleges in the UK. It offers a distinctive variety of programmes in art, design, crafts and media from part-time and short courses through to Foundation Degrees and BA (Hons) Degrees, and Postgraduate degrees, Creative Professional Development and Business courses serving the needs of the creative industries sector. Currently some 2,500 students are enrolled at the College.
Continuing investment in the College’s estate and technical resources, coupled with highly qualified staff, ensures that all students have access to a high quality practice-based experience, enabling them to achieve their full potential. The College is recognised for its effective partnership and collaboration, for example in widening participation into learning and exceptional quality employer engagement, while also being a member of the National Arts Learning Network.
The current purpose-built facilities include dedicated glass and metal studios which are accessible to all students regardless of discipline. These include dark rooms and an ‘infinity cove’ in the photography department, a studio theatre, fuel fired kilns for ceramics, sewing machines for fashion and textiles and colour calibrated macs for the many successful art and design courses.
