Course programme

Course Content

Fine Art Painting is a practical course offering students a diverse and thorough experience of the painting process. Critical theory lectures and seminars underpin and inform practical work. The course also includes enterprise and professional practice modules to help students achieve their career ambitions. A skills based first year provides an effective starting point from which to establish your own personal visual language. During years two and three you will develop a more independent approach to learning, pursuing your own interests and concerns through negotiated projects and strong tutorial support. You are encouraged to develop your own vision and produce a resolved body of work leading to a final year exhibition at the end of the course.
