This variety of options allows you to commit to one of these discipline areas or to work across these areas in a hybrid manner.

Main studio, workshop skills and activities include:
- Painting: oil, acrylic, construction, mixed media, collage.

Teaching and Assessment
Learn in a student-centred environment and thrive as an artist
You will be taught through small lectures and seminars along with peer group critiques in the studio which will support your independent, self-directed work. You will learn to create your own negotiated pattern of work as you move towards an exhibition for your degree show in your final year.
You will experience a wide variety of approaches to learning through core and optional modules that build to form an incremental approach to fine art practice. The development of knowledge and skills is encompassed through the use of a wide range of materials, media and processes in studio and workshop activity to develop your practical skills and subject knowledge. The integration of the cultural, critical and theoretical debate and inquiry provides you with the ability to contextualise your work within academic frameworks.
You will experience a combination of practical assessment (including a public degree show at the end of year three), report writing, essays and presentations, using clear assessment criteria that reflect achievement.
