Fine Art MA

Course Description

The Fine Art MA will develop your artistic practice, contextual awareness and theoretical understanding within a stimulating and distinctive studio environment. Much more than consolidating existing knowledge, the course will introduce you to emerging trends in contemporary practice, and will enable you to find your voice in a fast evolving visual culture that is increasingly collaborative, networked and dispersed. As well as leaving with all of the necessary skills to produce and exhibit your work, you will leave equipped to deal with change, and able to negotiate your individual, critical and creative position.

The course is designed to give you the skills for continuous development throughout your artistic, professional, and academic life. You will be supported from
the outset in developing research methods and aims that are pertinent to your creative practice and your professional ambitions. The course will develop your specialist knowledge to an advanced level, and give you hands-on experience of contemporary practice. You will be taught by exhibiting artists and research-active academics with expertise in drawing, painting, sculpture, analogue and digital photography, digital media, printmaking, public art, installation, and relational practice. Teaching is delivered in a combination of 1:1 tutorials, group seminars, lectures, workshops, and field-trips. You will be supported by a highly skilled team of technical demonstrators with access to a range of workshops including metal, wood, plaster, resin and other processes, as well as CAD facilities, photographic darkrooms, studios and editing suites. You will have your own individual studio space, and become part of a large and dynamic cohort of Fine Art students, studying from BA to PhD level. This approach gives you access to a wide range of visiting artists and critical input, with opportunities for you to lead discussion groups and seminars.
