Students with a passion for creative media and product design are invited to Bath College to take part in practical taster sessions.
Tutors are organising a creative media evening and product design challenge day to show students what it’s like to study at Bath College.
Students looking for a course to study in September are invited to visit, take a look at the college and speak to current students and staff.
The creative media taster evening, on April 28th, is aimed at students interested in filmmaking, design and animation.
Film and video producer Ed Powell will be on hand to help those who want to have a go at Photoshop, animation, and video editing.
He said: “The creative media production course is one of the leading programmes in the South West.
“Learners work on a variety of projects within digital publishing, animation and film production using industry standard software, such as Adobe Creative Suite.
“Those that study on the course thrive in our teaching environment, which offers them the opportunity to work collaboratively on industry-style project briefs using state of the art software and equipment.
“Students who are thinking that media might be for them should sign up to one of the sessions on offer, as it will offer them the chance to chat with current students and sample some of the software you would use.”
Bath College runs a busy product design course. This year students travelled abroad to complete work experience with German manufacturing companies.
The Bath College product design challenge takes place over a day, giving students the chance to see how the design process works.
Participants will be asked to work in small groups, come up with design ideas, and present these on paper to tutors.
Art and design lecturer James Purslow said: “The day is organised to give you a chance to experience product design and offer an insight into how the industry approaches idea generation, design, making, and presenting your work.
“At Bath College, the focus of the product design course is creativity. The course focuses on the development of our learners as creative thinkers and problem solvers. They use drawing and making to develop an understanding and appreciation of visual communication, materials, and historical influences, to inspire and inform ideas and concepts.
“We also provide students with an external client brief, and they will have the opportunity to apply for work experience with a local firm. We can promise more ‘making’ than any other product design course at this level.”
Come along to the creative media taster evening on Thursday April 28th from 5pm to 7pm. For more information e-mail Media@bathcollege.ac.uk.
