BA (Hons) Fine Art Practice
What will I learn?
Our BA (Hons) Fine Art Practice course has broad delivery of specialisms including painting, installation, sculpture, printmaking, film and performance. Students explore these disciplines through material and conceptual considerations, giving the course a contemporary edge. The beginning of the course involves series of inductions into workshops, allowing students to progress to more self-directed study, while developing specialist areas of interest. There is an emphasis in contextualising work within contemporary practice by aligning academic research with studio production. Students undertake work experience as part of this course; past students have worked as artists assistants, in galleries, in UK and New York, in education and in a bronze foundry. A dissertation is also included in the course and in the final year work towards their graduation exhibition. The student experience is enriched by a dynamic visiting lecture programme of both national and international artists. Throughout, students are guided and supported by group debate, individual tutorial guidance and specialist seminars.
