Academic Year 2021/22

Level 1 Art, Design and Media and Level 2 Creative and Technical Design students have been exploring the themes ‘Recycling’ and ‘Order and Chaos in the Natural World’ as part of their Final Major Projects. This culminated in a departmental exhibition where students were able to prepare and present their final pieces in a professional manner. Throughout this project students have considered themes of sustainability, ethical practice and climate change and have had the opportunity to apply their own ideas to a range of creative outcomes and workshops. Including, Photography, Visual Studies, Digital Media, Print Making, Graphic Communication and 3D. It has been a fantastic year and the student have worked really hard!

Academic Year 2020/21


UAL Level 1 Diploma in Art, Design and Media students held an end of year art exhibition in class with some of the pieces featured selected for display in our Learning Resource Centre by the LRC Manager who came along to judge the work. The work is based on portraits and links to the student’s work experience.

The Formal Elements

Work by UAL Level 3 Diploma in Creative Practice: Art, Design and Communication Students.

During the Autumn term students at Darlington College have been exploring the theme ‘The Formal Elements’ considering the ways that Line, Form, Pattern, Texture, Shape, Tone and Colour are used to communicate meaning, messages, feelings and ideas in the visual arts.

The students have explored a range of materials, methods and techniques associated with photography, visual communication, and visual studies practice. Through this project they have developed their knowledge of visual language and an ability to apply this to their own work.

These are the final pieces produced by the students and represent a mix of specialisms and creative ideas.
