Fine Art

This course is designed for people whose art, ideas and ambitions create diversity of thinking and purpose; the interdisciplinary opportunities offered create an engaging professional experience covering all areas of the practice and theory of fine art; students have access to a wide range of workshops and technical expertise across all areas of media and fabrication; these include sculpture, painting, performance, computer programming, metalwork, video editing, dark rooms, sound studios, film production equipment, and printmaking; the course is particularly suitable for students who are open-minded, ambitious, want new personal challenges across the diverse range of work, and want to gain a more thorough understanding of all areas of that work; critical analysis of current work and engaging in dialogue with and through that work allows students to relate their practice to the wider field of fine art.
