Overview

Develop your technical skills and artistic direction while growing your passion for art

Our BA (Hons) Fine Art degree will introduce you to new ways of working, help you to develop new ideas and discover new processes so that you can grow as an artist. You will have complete artistic freedom and develop skills and knowledge in a wide range of disciplines before choosing your specialism.

This extensive programme is built around the key areas of drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and textiles. It is supported by technical workshop provision to enable you to achieve the highest quality art production. This variety of options allows you to commit to one of these discipline areas or to work across these areas in a hybrid manner. We will encourage you to develop intellectual curiosity and a sense of adventure, with an ability to deal with the unpredictable.

Main studio, workshop skills and activities include:

  • Painting: oil, acrylic, construction, mixed media, collage.
  • Printmaking: etching, screen-printing, relief printing, mono-print and combined media, block print and photo based processes
  • 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.
