Overview

There’s a strong emphasis on developing skills acquisition, creative intelligence and conceptual and critical thinking abilities, which are integrated with modules in Critical Theory and Professional Practice.

In this programme, you’ll develop the skills to realise your ideas and gain an articulate, critical and informed understanding of contemporary Fine Art, its evolution, contexts and critical discourses.

The programme

The course provides the intellectual environment and technical resources to enable each student to realise their own creative potential as a professional artist.

In addition to their own art practice, you’ll be encouraged to participate in study trips to international art events, national trips focused on land works, and attend visiting lecturers, art survey sessions, artists talks, and gallery and studio visits.

On graduation, you’ll be able to originate, develop and articulate concepts in Fine Art practices; articulate a practical and theoretical understanding of Fine Art through essays, presentations, learning portfolios and thesis; and apply comprehensive material and technical skills to your practice.
