Making Change July 2024 | Event in Plymouth | About the event Making Change July 2024
A free, hands on, art school experience which will get you ready to study art at University level, whilst building a portfolio of work

About this Event

Are you curious about studying art at University level but need a bit more experience, a confidence boost or want to immerse yourself in a few new creative techniques before you start your degree?

Join us on our free three-week Making Change course. This course has been designed to prepare you to start university and gain support for your application. You will get an art school experience, and during the course you will get the chance to meet the lecturers for the subjects you are interested in studying.

You will learn how to work with different painting and printing techniques, test your skills as a fine artist and get hands-on with materials, all while building a portfolio.

This course has previously prepared students to enrol on to a range of Arts University Plymouth Undergraduate courses, including our Extended BA (Hons) Degree, which is a four-year degree route. You can see a full list of the courses you could study. We have also had students from our Making Change course go on to study at a postgraduate level, and a full list of our postgraduates courses can be found.

“Honestly, I can't believe the course was only three weeks long. The connections we all made were genuine, positive and have created a new opportunity for me that I have been trying to achieve for the past 20 years without success!” Making Change student, March 2022

With one-to-one support, advice and completing your application, alongside plenty of exciting artistic exploration, Making Change will help you discover your creative potential. Did we mention that it’s FREE?

“Getting the experience of what it would be like to study at AUP and what course I would be best suited to was great. The practical guidance on how to apply was very useful, as well as the encouragement and personal guidance from the tutor. There was a very welcoming, nurturing atmosphere, and it was fun to attend.” Making Change student March 2022
