Fine Art Hull College
Hull College

The BA (Hons) Fine Art course will enable you to establish your own distinctive creative language through process-driven studio activity, underpinned by contextual and theoretical learning. At Hull, we foster an open-minded and discursive approach to art making through the investigation of traditional and contemporary methods. Our Fine Art graduates progress to a range of careers, being valued for their versatility, inventiveness, communication skills and technical ability. Pluralistic and outward looking, the course draws upon diverse perspectives in art practice and theory. Our ethos privileges making in all its forms. Staff and students are encouraged to challenge orthodoxies, take risks, value experimentation and support each-other critically. This will inspire you to explore new possibilities in painting, sculpture, printmaking, time-based media, performance, installation, intervention, photography and drawing.

Course details


In year one you will gain an understanding of approaches to art. The emphasis is on exploring media and processes through experimentation. Fundamental skills and techniques are learnt alongside the introduction to contexts and theories. In year two, making skills become more developed and a growing awareness of where your work is located within an art historical and contemporary context is gained. Your work will become more independent and distinctive, with more critical depth. In year three, intellectual and technical applications are more sustained and complex. Through the dissertation and studio programme, a position is established for work that strongly links practice and theory. This culminates in a refined and professional presentation of your work at the Degree Show.
