One of the few painting degrees in the UK, Fine Art Painting at Brighton is studio-based and centred on vital hands-on learning-by-doing. Our course is well known and highly respected. Many of our graduates exhibit their work globally and have made significant contributions to fine art and related cultural spheres. Rather than teaching a house style, we offer a diverse and dynamic learning experience, rooted in painting but extending across many fine art media. We aim to foster independent artists and thinkers who engage through experimentation, exploration and risk taking. This prepares you to engage with the world of contemporary fine art through a range of individual approaches. Your tutors are internationally exhibiting artists with painting at the core of their practices, all with professional experience of the subject. Frequent individual and group tutorials guide you through every aspect of your work – from the material, to the conceptual and contextual. Methods and materials workshops give you practical knowledge of painting skills and critical studies foster your social and historical awareness. Professional development modules prepare you for successful creative careers beyond graduation. This course sits within a suite of Fine Art courses at Brighton alongside Fine Art and Printmaking.
