Art and design is a way of seeing things and making sense of the world around you. Art helps you develop creative skills and the ability to visualise new ideas and improve visual literacy which can be useful in many career areas such as arts, crafts and design, broadcast media and performing arts, journalism and publishing. Gaining an ability to decipher and exploit images can help to make you stand out from the competition in the multi-media workspaces of an increasingly visual world.
