Why choose this course?
Explore a range of approaches on a vibrant Fine Art degree from drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking to installation, video and lens-based digital media. Whether a student wants to specialise in one area or broaden their ability in each, they will maximize their creative and critical skills enabling them to develop as an independent artist.
Fine art is perhaps one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects in art and design, providing the opportunity to enhance creative, critical and collaborative skills and to develop both as an independent practitioner and as a highly adaptable creative professional.
Students will develop the ability to adapt creative solutions to new situations, solve problems and manage their time effectively. They will learn to make effective use of a range of techniques and technologies, work with others and develop an awareness of how to communicate with their audience. Students will gain experience of the professional working environment through the highly regarded Creative Futures modules. As they become more experienced in techniques, the use of a variety of materials and creative concepts, they will be able to take their work in their own individual direction.
High-quality studios and specialist project spaces allow students to test out ideas and learn not only through making, but also through a process of installing, re-installing and reconfiguring their work.
You can also choose to study this course as a foundation year BA (Hons) Fine Arts (4 years including foundation year) and as an integrated masters MFA Fine Art.
Every student or member of staff were very welcoming when I started in September. They show an interest in everyone’s work by walking round the studios and asking questions. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback about my artwork.
