Northumberland College has launched an innovative new arts programme that takes learners straight into the professional art world.
The college’s Level 3 Foundation Diploma course in art and design is being launched in conjunction with Breeze Creatives in the heart of Newcastle City Centre at Commercial Union House, a thriving cultural hub.
Breeze Creatives comprises arts, theatre craft makers and dancers to be one of the north east’s leading contemporary galleries.
Patrick O’Doherty, programme area leader for arts at Northumberland College, said: “This ground-breaking course is unlike any other in the north east because the development and learning will take place in an environment saturated with professionals within the arts and across the most diverse of fields.
“The aim of this course is to educate students so that they can make informed decisions about the direction they want to go in.”
