Teesside University, Middlesbrough has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Summary: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. The course provides studio-based learning that allows you to specialise in painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography and/or new media. You have open access to all media workshops to develop your personally defined project themes.
Course details: Lectures, seminars and studio-based critique raise ideas and themes to explore the shifting status of beauty in visual culture and contemporary practice. You work with visiting artists, curators and writers who share their expertise during lectures and give direct tutorial support to your individual research projects. Our fine art graduates have been instrumental in setting up a broad range of artist-led studio groups and galleries in the Tees Valley including Platform-A Gallery. We provide you with individual studios from the very start, and access to latest facilities with skilled technicians that can help you create and innovate. We have a dedicated print room with bookbinding, a media centre that loans cameras and equipment, sound proof recording studios, green-screen production studios, Mac and PC labs, and a stellar workshop for wood, 3D printing, metalworking and welding. We also have dark rooms to work with analogue photography, enhanced by excellent technical support.
After the course: When you successfully complete the foundation year, you can progress to the first year of the degree. Fine art graduates move forward into an increasingly broad range of professional futures including postgraduate study at Teesside University and education through Graduate Teacher Training and Recruitment, acquire sponsored fellowships and arts-based residencies (facilitated by DigitalCity and Tees Valley Arts), develop independent practice through locally based studio groups (Saltburn Artist Projects, Navigator North and Platform Arts), work as curators for gallery-based exhibitions (The Heritage Gallery and Python Gallery), take advantage of local and regional opportunities for additional professional development (a-n and Arts Council England, North East) and, as self-employed artists, become professional cultural practitioners.
