This qualification is part of the Creative Arts and Culture Training Package. It reflects the role of individuals who have para-professional level technical, creative and conceptual skills to originate, realise and exhibit a substantial body of resolved work that expresses their own creative vision. Visual artists work within and across many mediums, and their practice may incorporate ceramics, digital art, glasswork, drawing and illustration, jewellery making, painting, photomedia, printmaking, public art, sculpture, textiles or wood design. Practice at this level is underpinned by application of art theory and history, the ability to engage in critical discourse and to debate one's own work and the work of others.
