BA (Hons) Art Practice is interdisciplinary and cross-specialist in areas such as Printmaking, Drawing & Painting, Mixed Media, and 3D Creation. The programme combines theoretical perspectives with the development of practical art skills. Central to our ethos is the notion that through exposure to art theory, analysis of contextual material and critical reflection, visual awareness is developed and effective strategies to convey meaning are formed. Innovative idea-generation and problem-solving are fundamental to the course design. The programme places vocational art at its center, enabling you to develop an understanding of the professional world of art and design in order that you can establish their own individual practice. The programme enables the exploration of a range of specialisms and develops critical contextual skills, emphasising and encouraging creative growth through enquiry and experimentation to create visual solutions with originality and flair.
