The broadest of all the individual specialisms, Fine Art covers a wide variety of media and techniques. These include traditional drawing, painting and sculpture alongside the more contemporary installation art, animation, film, photography, printmaking, performance and digital imagery.
All students participate in practical and theoretical workshops and are encouraged to experiment with a wide range of media in order to express their ideas. All practical work is underpinned by contextual sources and students are encouraged to visit galleries to engage with artwork first hand.
What will this course prepare me for?
Students develop a wide range of transferable skills through studying Fine Art which are sought by employers and universities. Some of these skills include creativity, problem solving, organisation and communication skills.
Developing employability skills is also encouraged through students participating in external exhibitions, competitions, work experience and through workshops with visiting artists and designers.
Many of our students progress onto the UAL Art Foundation Diploma and then access Higher Education. This year students have gained prestigious university places at Goldsmiths, Central St. Martin’s, Falmouth, Edinburgh University and others. Students have gained places on courses such as Illustration, Animation, Fine Art, Interactive Arts and Architecture.
