Develop skills in a range of traditional and contemporary processes while growing your passion for printmaking
Printmaking encompasses a variety of skills and techniques enabling you to develop professional approaches to a range of making processes. Built around the key areas of traditional print media, our BA (Hons) Fine Art with Printmaking degree will encourage you to extend your work into more contemporary electronic/digital practices and to experiment with other 2D media such as painting and drawing. This route allows you to commit to this discipline area and explore a variety of traditional and experimental hand-printing and photographic methods.
You will make use of excellent facilities that support a wide range of practice and will be supported by technical workshop provision and to enable you to achieve the highest quality art production. Our expert workshops will give you demonstrations in professional techniques and processes in screen-print and etching as well as relief print including collagraph and woodcut.
Studying at the University of Chichester, you will immerse yourself in your work by making use of our specialist studio and workshop facilities as well as having access to your very own dedicated studio space. You will study in a supportive and student focused environment enabling you to become a versatile, creative and confident artist.
A key element to provision of the Fine Art programmes is our commitment to outward-facing application and exhibition of your artwork at the degree show. You will spend your final year consolidating your work to an expert standard which will then be exhibited in public spaces. There are several hundred visitors and much of the work is sold which will provide you with a professional showcase for your work.
Main studio, workshop skills and activities include:
- Relief print
- Block printing
- Combined media
- Digital art: photo based processes, digital processes are also integrated into the area, linking Photoshop and other digital media with the range of print methods

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.
