Our programme is built around the key areas of drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and textiles. Each of these disciplines is supported by technical workshop provision to enable you to achieve the highest quality art production. The range of degrees allows you to commit to one of these discipline areas or to work across these areas. We will encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity, and a sense of adventure, with an ability to deal with the unpredictable. In the first year students will initially be set a series of research and drawing based activities that will drive the students’ ideas towards a self-directed practice, greater independence, and by the final year, the attainment of a distinctive vision. Lectures and seminars along with the peer group critique in the studio, support independent, self-directed work. Students will learn to create their own negotiated pattern of work as they move towards an exhibition for their degree show in their final year.
