BA (Hons)Fine Art

Course Overview

Participate in an exciting cross-disciplinary fine art course. Structured around a dynamic culture of making and based in purpose built studios, this unique degree course is designed to challenge you to fulfil your potential.

The course considers fine art practice in its widest sense. Workshops offer a solid foundation in testing the physical and conceptual potential of media, from building installation, to making oil paint and developing online platforms. Regular lectures, group critiques and visiting artists assist in developing practical and critical faculties. A team of permanent and visiting artists of international standing are on-hand to assist you.

Britain has long been a global centre for cutting edge artistic practice and dialogue. As part of our programme, we offer opportunities to engage in international exchange; exhibition; professional work placements; a New Forest studio retreat and London degree show. We foster an entrepreneurial attitude, encouraging engagement with the wider cultural environment, both as provocateurs and professionals. Our graduates go on to be leading contributors in fine art disciplines – whether as assistants to leading global brands such as Damien Hirst; curators; the innovators of art collectives; or as the next generation of inspiring arts practitioners and teachers.

COLLABORATION

We have established collaborations with other specialisms, agencies and organisations on local, national and international levels. The professional aspects of Fine Art are considered to be a vital part of an artist’s education. You will have the opportunity to work alongside professional artists in galleries, museums, schools and community groups, equipping you with the required tools to become thought-provoking agents for change in society and the cultural sector.
