Fine Art at University of Brighton - UCAS

Course summary

Our Fine Art BA is a dynamic course that guides you in imagining, investigating, experimenting and communicating your creative ideas. You will work in dedicated studio spaces to create artworks where thinking is explored through making. Opportunities to present work in progress to your peers and staff in a project space allow the testing out of your ideas in a friendly, supportive environment. Access to specialist workshops, staffed by technical demonstrators, enables experimentation with a range of contemporary, digital and traditional materials and processes. Staff are experienced arts practitioners working in varied contexts. Whether working in collage, installation, sculpture, performance, text, or digital media you will enhance your creativity, and develop composition, communication, collaboration and critical skills. Professional skills are acquired through presenting your artwork in public exhibitions and producing proposal documents. You are encouraged to consider the context of your work through a university-located fine art placement or studio- based artist residency. The course supports you to research, self-motivate, communicate, collaborate, organise and plan – skills transferable to varied roles within the creative industries. This course sits within a suite of Fine Art courses at Brighton alongside Fine Art Painting and Printmaking. Please see entries for these courses to find out more.
