About this course

This course combines a creative studio environment with the rigorous study of visual images. It will support your development as an artist and your engagement with visual and material culture. Through technical and studio-based workshops you’ll build confidence and competence in your practice. You’ll produce work for a portfolio, exhibition and review, and have the chance to exhibit your work. This course offers a critical approach to the study of fine art.
