Why choose art and design at West Notts?

Purpose-built facilities

The Visual Art and Design Centre provides industry-standard facilities and an inspiring space for those with creative ambitions.

Tutors with industry experience

Our art and design tutors are as creative as our students. Tutors come from backgrounds including working with top designers like Vivienne Westwood - so they really know their stuff.

Showcase your creativity

As an art, design or fashion student you’ll build up a portfolio of work which you’ll be proud to show off. At college, students regularly hold showcases to share their best work.

What our students say

Raeannah chats to us from the art and design curriculum about all the creative techniques she gets involved in during her time at the college. She’s particularly enjoying textiles and using the sewing machines to create her work.
