Foundation year of art online?

Heya! I've finished uni and looking to do something completely different and I'd love to do a foundation year of art, since I wanted to after A-Levels but never really committed (long story short). However, I'm also working part time at an art gallery which I absolutely love and really don't want to quit, so I need a placement which is ideally online (since I work part time, I have a lot of free time). However, I can't find anything which fits the bill at all :frown: The Open Arts University has a brilliant course, but you have to pick a specialism and stick to it for the whole course, which isn't quite what I'm looking for, as I love the broadness of the traditional foundation. Can anyone help me out? I don't mind what institution the course is connected to :smile: Can anyone send recommendations?

Have you spoken to local FE colleges? It should be possible to do an in person foundation while working part time

I have, but sadly it’s full time only!

Even a full time FAD course is generally only 27 hours a week of study - easily possible to work part time alongside it, especially if you're able to work evenings of weekends.

Most FAD courses will only have timetabled sessions for 3 or 4 days a week to help students work part time alongside their studies.
