Our BA (Hons) Fine Art course involves you in a diverse and creative community where you are encouraged to learn the business of becoming an artist in the contemporary world.
This challenging and engaging course is structured within our three specialist studios: Studio S, Studio D and Studio P, which each provide a supportive community nominally based around sculpture, drawing or painting, led by an experienced team of artists. You will develop your work through regular critiques and workshops with staff and peers, as well as exploring aspects of art history and critical thought to help you to situate your work within contemporary art practices.
The course supports the development of your studio practice, with a strong emphasis on craft and skill that stems from our long history of traditional art education.
Our award-winning facilities will allow you to produce work that spans a diverse range of media, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, film, installation, performance, text and sound.
We will arrange cultural visits to galleries and exhibitions, and you can take inspiration from nearby Leeds Art Gallery, the Henry Moore Institute, the award-winning Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and The Hepworth Wakefield which was crowned the Art Fund Museum of the Year (2017).
You will be encouraged to seek opportunities to exhibit your work, gaining valuable experience and practical skills that will help to prepare you for a range of rewarding careers in this exciting discipline.
