Diploma in Foundation Studies, Art and Design Level 3 / 4

Study Fine Art, Illustration, Graphic Design, 3D, Animation, Fashion and Textiles in South Wales at one of Wales' leading Creative Arts Centres - Coleg y Cymoedd Nantgarw Campus, Cardiff




“The Foundation course not only focused my creativity towards Illustration, it expanded my knowledge outside of art, the way I looked at things and how I responded to the world around me. I don't think I would be as diverse in my creativity now if it hadn't been for FAD.”

Siôn Owen, Working as a Creative hustler...a mix of Freelance work, illustrator, caricaturist, TV/Radio/Podcast Presenter, Creative workshop tutor, author.
