University Of Bedfordshire Fine Art

University Of Bedfordshire Fine Art

Your ideas need expression, your imagination demands freedom, your work seeks its place. This course will help you develop as an artist as you focus on painting, printmaking, digital media installations and other 2D practices.

We will also encourage you to think about how Fine Art relates to the world, and how traditional approaches are challenged by different cultures, technologies and ideas of what art is.

Your ultimate aim will be to work in a fresh, independent and critical way, producing work that reflects your individuality and place in the world.
