Course summary

This course will push you to develop your skills in your chosen medium, whether that is Illustration, drawing, painting, photography or printmaking. You will become more confident as a creative practitioner of contemporary art as you explore your own styles and imaginative boundaries. The Masters in Fine Art features a highly practical repertoire of modules which will encourage you to direct your studies into areas of art which particularly fascinate you. This course is highly practical, not only in the hands-on approach to Art itself, but also in studying the necessary practicalities of exhibition preparation, installation and evaluation.
