The one year HNC in Fine Art will allow you to explore your artistic practice through a broad diagnostic introduction to contemporary art. For example, painting, printmaking, sculpture or in an interdisciplinary way. In addition, you will develop methodologies for idea generation within an art context. The course will also introduce you to the philosophy and sociology of art. Art theory and contextual studies are delivered alongside your practical artwork. The course is run by art practitioners and they emphasised professional practice through live projects and by enabling you to submit work to national art competitions, for example, the Jerwood Drawing Prize. From this HNC course, you can progress onto our HND. The course benefits from a guest speaker programme and students also have the opportunity to travel abroad on cultural visits, for example, Berlin or Amsterdam or New York.
Module A: Process & Practice Unit A1: Concept & Development Unit A2: Creative Project
You will work with a range of specialist lecturers, including practising designers, in well-equipped studios and workshops. Project briefs are set for each assignment, and you are encouraged to develop a personal response to each task. All activities are supported through one-to-one tutorials and group discussions to inform you of personal progress and to aid assessment. Assessment is continuous throughout the course, with assignments graded at the end of each project.
