Students who completed a Level 2 Certificate in Creative Craft, Painting and Drawing in July 2018 are showcasing their artwork in the Foyer reception of Adult Education Wolverhampton.
This class of students started their journey in April 2016 with a beginner’s art class and have remained together to study the NCFE Level 1 Award in Creative Craft in 16-17.
They have since learnt to:
- use raw materials, tools and equipment in a safe way
- develop analytical and research skills
- evaluate their own work, develop ideas and learning through the craft process
- develop an understanding of health and safety considerations in the craft environment
- develop an overview of enterprise skills and characteristics present in successful enterprising individuals
- develop communication skills through a range of media
In July 2018 the whole class went on to successfully complete and pass the Level 2 qualification, the group have worked consistently well together and are due to start the Level 3 Certificate in Creative Crafts in September 2018. Artwork from the Level 2 Certificate was of such high standard that one of the student’s artwork (Paul Owen) was selected by the external moderator as exemplar work to be used for national standardisation by NCFE.
The students continue to meet during holiday periods to share ideas and creativity and have recently organised and coordinated a Wolverhampton art gallery visit.
The students said…
"We are a group of people from different walks of life, in class we come together as an interactive and supportive group, learning from each other, we work well together with our teacher engendering a creative and inspiring environment."
"The Tutor is the key, not only does she teach us the skills but she makes us think about what we are doing and inspires us to develop our own vision."
"The Art group has been very supportive and beneficial to my creativity. The tutor is brilliant and has made learning a pleasure...in all a very sociable and inspirational class."
“The class has given me the opportunity to develop my skills and see which direction I wanted to take my creativity. The demonstrations were inspiring and the group are helpful with positive critique. Working towards a final project has given me structure with some flexibility.”
Adult Education would like to congratulate the whole group for achieving such a high standard of work and wishes all students the very best with their Level 3 course starting in September.
