Award and Certificate in Drawing

Drawing by Mike Walsh

The Level 2 and Level 3 Award and Certificate in Drawing has been designed to provide students with an exciting and challenging experience, which will introduce them to the rigours and rewards of exploring and working within the most fundamental of creativity activities.

The qualifications, whilst allowing learners to build on prior experience, will require them to approach new intellectual and material challenges, designed to deliver an independent critical understanding and extended skills base.

These qualifications form part of our 'Creative Framework' suite of qualifications and have been designed and written by a team of practitioners working in the sector.
