    I am in a spot of bother, over the past 2/3 years I have been suffering from a few mental health issues which has effected my education dramatically. I did very well in my GCSE's and got both my Maths and English and received grades up to an A. The jump from Secondary level to A-levels really was too big for me and has resulted in me leaving two colleges and my parents spending over £300 in art supplies due to my moves. I am in desperate need of help as my parents are on their last tether and are close to asking me to leave the house, so I was wondering if there was any chance I could take an Art based subject independently? If so how, who with etc?
    Thankyou

    You can study an art foundation diploma through distance learning
    http://idesigni.co.uk/courses/art-de...ign-foundation is the only one I'm aware of that's taught through a university (there are others that seem to be covered by online learning colleges but you need to do your homework into whether they're reputable - the bare minimum should be an ABC Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design).

    Online courses aren't free however.

    You might be better off talking to local FE colleges about the options they offer for sitting Art courses as an external candidate.
