BA (Hons) Art Practice will provide you with an outstanding programme of delivery that combines theoretical perspectives with the development of high-level practical art skills. Innovative idea-generation and problem-solving are at the heart of the course to enable students to develop successful visual solutions with originality and flair. The course has been designed to enable you to develop critical contextual skills, emphasising and encouraging creative growth through research. Central to our ethos is the notion that through exposure to art theory, analysis of contextual material and critical reflection, visual awareness is developed and effective strategies to convey meaning are formed.
The course is interdisciplinary and cross-specialist, enabling you to explore a range of specialisms to develop an individual creative process through enquiry and experimentation. In addition, the programme places vocational art at its centre, enabling students to develop an understanding of the professional world of art and design in order that they can establish their own individual practice. As such, BA (Hons) Art Practice has been formulated to enable creative individuals interested in forging a successful career in artistic practice in areas such as Printmaking, Drawing & Painting, Mixed Media and 3D Creation pathways to develop collectively within a unified degree programme.
