Their intellectual, imaginative, creative and intuitive powers through the use of traditional media and digital manipulation (especially Adobe Photoshop editing and application in assignment developmental work).
Their investigative, analytical, experimental, practical, technical and expressive skills, aesthetic understanding and critical judgement.
An understanding of the interrelationships between art, craft and design and an awareness of the contexts in which they operate.
Knowledge and understanding of art, craft and design in contemporary society and in other times and cultures.
