Fine Art


Course Description

Taught at our Kingsway Campus, this course embraces the richness and diversity of contemporary fine art practice. It will provide you with a stimulating environment of practical support and critical challenge in which you can develop the ambitions of your creative practice, allowing you to give it sharpened focus and intellectual rigour.

Why Study Fine Art with us?

Our course encourages a wide variety of creative approaches that operate either within established disciplines or across the boundaries of artistic media. It is particularly distinctive in welcoming students who are interested in positioning textile materials and processes within a contemporary fine art context.

By relating theory and practice, the course will allow you to challenge your working procedures and situate your studio enquiry within a research context so that it becomes much more critically robust.

The delivery of the part-time mode in the early evening is structured to accommodate students who may wish to combine their study alongside full-time employment.

What will I learn?

Studio practice is central to the course. This is supported by a research methods module, which provides an introduction to some of the broader critical debates and methodological approaches relevant to contemporary art and design research. The development of a research journal will allow you to negotiate historical, theoretical and contemporary contexts and subject your work to a level of critical scrutiny that will lead to new artistic insights and an invigoration of your practice.

How will I be taught?

The course is delivered through lectures, seminars and work-in-progress exhibitions/presentations which are delivered on a Wednesday afternoon/evening. Individual tutorials are arranged on a one-to-one basis in addition to this.

You will have full have access to the Department’s extensive workshops and technical support.
The notional learning time for students is circa 40 hours (full-time) or 20 hours (part-time) per week.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is through:
- studio production
- presentations
- a self-reflective research journal
- exhibitions
- supporting written assignments.
