Through the many learning and teaching experiences the programme offers, students and staff rigorously, critically and supportively engage in personal tutorials, group critiques and presentations. These discussions and critical forums take place in the Painting studios, across the College, through visits to galleries and collaborations with our partner institutions, and during visits to major exhibitions both in this country and abroad.
Our students are here to reflect upon and play out what kind of artists they want to be – how best to serve and challenge their personal agendas and all this in relation to current discussions and developments within the scope of contemporary painting, and the broader cultural realm. The student experience is supported by the painting programme, the opportunities and events that are timetabled across the School of Fine Art, and the Cultural and Historical Studies schedule.
Ultimately the programme is designed and delivered in order to support our graduates in developing art practices that are sustainable and meaningful to each artists particular ambitions and operate at the highest levels of the contemporary art world. With each new year-group the dynamic of the studios and the conversations around painting shift and broaden in their agendas and processes.
On graduation a selection of students are awarded studio residences, which the programme supports through a mentoring scheme, along with all our graduates being supported as they apply for residencies and other professional opportunities.
