Course summary

You’ll explore and challenge your idea of art by engaging with a broad array of artistic practices and theoretical ideas. We approach fine art as a collection of forms, concepts and creative methods for addressing some of the most pressing questions society is faced with today. You’ll investigate the interconnections between art and the larger social dynamics that shape our culture, such as ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, being human and our relationship to nature and the environment. You’ll become equipped to act in the world as artists and creative global citizens, innovators in your respective fields of making. We’ll prepare you to be a socially conscious graduate with an array of relevant and transferrable skills. By immersing yourself in a range of art techniques and practices, you’ll experiment with your own creativity and discover your personal style. You’ll be given a dedicated studio space to work from, allowing you lots of opportunity to embrace a multitude of materials and methods, to develop an ambitious and creative body of work. You’ll have opportunities to contribute to the creative community, to build networks in the city and to exhibit your work regularly. Through a range of professional development programmes, such as our weekly visiting artist talks and surfacing skills workshops, you’ll discover what kind of practitioner you want to be.
