Fine Art

The course aims to test the relationship between your work and key historical and critical developments. It also looks to consider it within current societal and political contexts. As a student on our course, you will need a contemporaneous outlook and be ready to question, be curious about and have enthusiasm to test boundaries of what constitutes art practice within the 21st Century. Our course at UCA Farnham is unique in that it provides students, studying at postgraduate level, with a range of facilities including bronze foundry, printmaking, metals, wood and casting. Specialist studio accommodation is provided for full and part-time students, and dedicated technical staff are on hand to support individual projects as well as introductions to workshop areas. Throughout your studies, you will be supported by professional artists, curators and theorists. The department has a rich tradition in the teaching and exploration of fine art, and many of the staff are research practitioners, contributing to the wider development of knowledge within their specialist areas.
