This inspiring degree course immerses you in a diverse community of creatives. You are encouraged to explore your individual interests, challenge and cultivate your talent, and learn about the business of becoming an exceptional artist in the contemporary world.
This engaging, broad-based fine art course is housed within specialist studio communities, led by experienced teams of practising artists. You will employ a range of strategies to support the development of your creative studio practice with an emphasis on craft, skill, and critical thought.
On joining the course, you will embark on orientation, induction, and familiarisation that draws on our established tradition of art education. You will then work in one of the specialist communities with regular critiques, seminars, and award-winning material workshops involving students’ input from different levels of the course.
Like our many famous artist alumni, you will have the freedom to produce work that spans a diverse range of media and embrace appropriate forms of resolution. This could include painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, installation, performance, screenings, text, or sound works.
We take cultural visits to galleries and exhibitions, including nearby Leeds Art Gallery, the Henry Moore Institute, the award-winning Yorkshire Sculpture Park and The Hepworth Wakefield. Educational visits and trips can take a variety of formats such as physical and virtual experiences. You will seek opportunities to publicly exhibit your work and gain valuable experience and practical skills. This will help prepare you for a rewarding career in this exciting discipline.
