ART AND DESIGN (PHOTOGRAPHY) What does the course involve? Art & Design (Photography) encourages students to explore the nature and practice of Photography through the creation of images created by digital and film means, and by a combination of the two. These studies, produced in a work journal format, are a combination of research, analysis and experimentation that lead on to the final series of responses. This involves looking at the work of other artists and showing clear developmental processes employed to reach an independent and imaginative conclusion.
