PTE's (Art and Design)

Art and Design

Art and design – first off they are not the same thing. Both disciplines require talent and skills, and both can be incredibly fulfilling to study and to try to take into a career. But they are different.

Art exists only because the artist wanted it to, while design is done to solve a problem and so it needs to be understood.

These institutions specialise in courses related to this field.
