We recognise that many Art students want to specialise from the outset of their degree, focusing the development of skills in one clear discipline area. Our programme is built around the key areas of drawing and painting. Each of these disciplines are supported by technical workshop provision to enable you to achieve the highest quality art production. This new degree allows you to commit to this discipline area and explore the area observational and experimental work. Through this journey we will encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity, and a sense of adventure, with an ability to deal with the unpredictable. In the first year students will initially be set a series of research and drawing based activities that will drive the students’ ideas towards a self-directed practice, greater independence, and by the final year, the attainment of a distinctive vision. Lectures and seminars along with the peer group critique in the studio, support independent, self-directed work. Students will learn to create their own negotiated pattern of work as they move towards an exhibition for their degree show in their final year. To achieve the highest quality art production, you will be supported by specialist workshops introducing you to oil, acrylic and other paint media where you will be given demonstrations in techniques and processes. We will encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity and a sense of adventure, with an ability to deal with the unpredictable.
