Course summary

Available for September or January intakes. Course overview: Do you dream of having your artwork presented in a gallery? Are you always making things, drawing, sculpting, printing or painting? Are you seeking a way to build a creative career? This course is student-centred and practice-based. Our experienced team of artists and academics coach you to find and grow your creative voice, building on your distinct skills and motivations, and guiding you to experiment with new formats and media to develop your ideas. You collaborate with your peers to gain new perspectives, developing your voice and practice. Grow your resilience by producing a creative drawing and writing journal, capturing your challenges, milestones and reflections to see patterns in your thinking and linking reoccurring ideas. Alongside this, you learn how to thrive in the creative industries, from testing ideas and creative directions to understanding pitching etiquette and developing large-scale projects. The course is supported by our very own international contemporary art gallery MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art), a Plus Tate Museum and gallery with a permanent art collection. Through experiencing the behind-the-scenes working of a museum, you can better understand the work of artists, producers, curators, museum education officers and marketing teams. These interactions help you take the next steps in your career. You have the opportunity to put these skills into action through staging exhibitions of your work with partner galleries, and events in Teesside and beyond. Top reasons to study this course: 1.
