Course summary

Develop your Contemporary Fine Art creative practice within a forward-thinking and multidisciplinary course. The HND Art and Design (Art Practice, Fine Art) course is a two-year level 5 qualification equivalent to the first 2 years of a fine art degree. Specialize and refine your creative practice in a supportive and stimulating environment with an excellent level of personal tutor contact and a dedicated studio space. You will be challenged and supported to extend your technical skills and strengthen your body of work. You will take part in guided visits to exhibitions and galleries and will experience a broad range of workshop demonstrations that will introduce and build the skills you need to develop as a practicing artist. The HND will give you the confidence to progress your ideas, make your mark in the context of current practice and support you in building a body of work that can best represent your vision, strengths and talents as a professional and exhibiting artist. On successful completion of this course you will achieve a Higher National Diploma in Art Practice. The course is based in our Chelsea Centre for Creative Industries which is situated between the Kings Road and the Fulham Road in London SW10, in the heart of Chelsea. We are fortunate to be situated close to major galleries and Museums including the Saatchi Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Science and Natural History Museums in Exhibition Road, and the Serpentine Galleries in Hyde Park. These and other galleries are used for art and design research by our student, perfect for finding your inspiration before coming to use our Fine Art studios, with flexible work spaces, and fantastic natural light, where you will be able to create work that fits your ambitions in a supportive environment. In addition, our successful Art Cast podcast series has enabled our students to connect with a wide range of artists to discuss their current practice and what it is like to work in the industry. Recent guests include: Jeremy Dellar, David Shrigley, Peter Kennard among others. The series is led by the Programme Manager for Fine Art, so you will have direct access and input into the series, which not only helps develop your awareness of contemporary practice, but can also be an opportunity to build your professional working skills. Listen to previous episodes here: At the Chelsea Centre for Creative Industries you will join part of a dynamic and well established community of like-minded people and artists working in varied fields and media.
