Welcome to the Art and Design Department at New College Leicester

The Art and Design department offers students a wide variety of experiences within a purpose-built environment. The department, which is based in the heart of the college, includes three art teaching spaces, a ceramics and 3D classroom, textiles room, digital arts suite and a photographic darkroom/studio.

Students have easy access to computers which we increasingly use to aid Art and Design activities. We positively encourage the use of our facilities by enthusiastic students at lunchtime and after school where they can pursue their own interests or extend upon the work produced in normal lessons.

Every year students who perform well are justifiably proud of their achievements and we recognise this by displaying their work around the college which provides ongoing inspiration to others.
