How the course is taught

The studio is at the centre of your learning and teaching. Teaching consists of individual tutorials, group discussions, critiques, technical workshops and student-led initiatives in exhibitions and presentations of work. At the beginning of the course, you’ll take part in introductory studio-based exercises and media workshops. The course is practice-led, with students taking increasing responsibility for self-directed study.

Course outline

Our Fine Art course consists of an integrated learning experience of visual art practice and critical studies, with an emphasis on studio practice. Studio practice comprises a range of contemporary art forms supported by technical facilities, studios and staff expertise. These include drawing, painting, print-making, performance, installation, 3D, video, digital and lens-based work. During the course you may work in any media that’s appropriate to the development of your studies.

Critical studies and reflective practice modules give you opportunities for written assignments and encourage your ability to contextualise and analyse visual arts practice.
