Painting Drawing and Printmaking, BA Hons PartTime

I seriously wouldn't of wanted to have studied anywhere else. This course was incredible for my growth as an artist and human being. The tutors are incredibly passionate about the teaching of painting, drawing and printmaking. Much more than my friends’ tutors who studied else where. read more

Painting Drawing and Printmaking, BA Hons PartTime

This course is perfect for learning new techniques and trying new things. I took a good few years out after a levels as it kinda made me loose my passion for art. This is nothing like that! You have way more creative freedom and in a much more friendly and relaxed environment. Such a. Great course read more

Illustration, BA Hons PartTime

Illustration at Arts University Plymouth has been so much fun! The structure stays similar over the 3 years but you get progressively more independent, and manage tasks for in line with industry expectations. I wouldn't feel anywhere near as confident to start a career in illustration without it! read more

Ben and Sam are the most wonderful, caring lecturers. The facilities are Plymouth College of Art are amazing; I have printed my work as a zine, screen-printed onto merch, and so much more.

Illustration, BA Hons PartTime

In honesty, my first year here was miserable honestly and it was because of the tutors. I didn't like their learning style and I hated it when we put our work on the walls and as a class, vote for our favourite. That did not make me feel great about my future since I never won nor came close to winning. My second year, despite the pandemic has been a lot better because of the change of tutors. I feel a lot more comfortable in my working ablities and no more silly voting crap. The briefs given to us are challenging enough but I haven't learnt anything new since I've been on the course. read more
