Art and Digital Design in Oxford

Improve your Art and Digital Design skills this summer

This course is designed for students who want to develop their techniques, perspectives, and portfolio for their current studies or for students who would like to try something new this summer.

Why improve your design skills?

The compilation of a comprehensive portfolio and sketchbook for your school studies is a time-consuming process. Blocks of uninterrupted time to develop ideas, experiment, and reflect are often hard for students to find in a busy school timetable. This Arts and Digital Design course helps you find this time, making it possible for you to create an engaging portfolio that reflects your abilities.
