Course summary

Overview Our Fine Art course combines visual art practice with critical studies and places a strong emphasis on studio culture. It is taught in the new purpose-built studios of the Art House building in Worcester city centre. Fine Art is at the forefront of cultural production, exploring new terrain and challenging existing ideas. Our course will allow you to become part of this momentum. By entering into a community of artists at Worcester you will have the support and encouragement needed to extend your creative work and ideas into new and unexplored areas. We encourage students to take a professional approach to their practices with a view to contributing to the creative and cultural life of the city and region. During the course you will create a substantial portfolio of work to showcase your technical and creative talents, culminating in your final degree show. The theoretical side of your degree will enable you to put your work into a range of contexts, explaining your influences, the reasoning behind your choice of subjects and materials, and your intentions for the work. Your practice will be supported by an academic and technical team who will introduce you to a range of making skills, the use of specialist workshop spaces and contemporary debates about art and its role in society. You will be able to build professional skills and networks through work placements, collaborations with practicing artists, international field trips and exhibiting in the gallery spaces at the Art House.
