New arts certificate at NorthTec

Budding artists who wish to study at tertiary level but do not qualify for a degree programme can now begin with a certificate in arts at NorthTec.

The level 4 Certificate in Arts and Design is being launched in July, and will provide a six-month introduction to the subject while teaching a range of foundation skills.

The hands-on programme will enable students to explore and expand their creative skills, knowledge and techniques. Earning students 60 credits at level 4, it is an excellent first step for people wanting to go on to study the arts at degree level.

The certificate also prepares students for employment in New Zealand’s thriving creative industries.

Students learn the processes needed to produce professional work in a studio environment. They also learn to present and analyse work, communicate artistic ideas and select and apply creative processes, methods and technologies.

Students on the programme will study art and design history, creative methodology, visual arts studio and graphic design.
