Fine Art at Bath Spa University is a studio centred course taught by practicing artists. From the outset you will have your own studio space and access to our excellent facilities and technical support. The course aims to support you to develop an independent, critical and reflective fine art practice in painting, drawing, sculpture, film, photography and performance. - A course about making, looking and thinking about art. Work towards an independent, critical and reflective practice. Gain theoretical knowledge to understand the broader issues in contemporary practice. Learn to analyse, reflect and communicate both verbally and visually. Be taught by specialist in the field. Core modules will equip you with the skills you need to build a successful career as an artist or in a related profession.
In Year 1 experimentation with materials, techniques and processes are foregrounded. You’ll establish a way of working that is playful and analytical; through this process you’ll begin to recognise what themes are emerging in your work. Year 2 is a pivotal period of development in which you are supported to progress your ideas, conceptual strategies and processes. You are encouraged to develop an awareness of the debates that surround your practice and continually test its boundaries. Off site exhibitions, projects and other initiatives will support you to consider work beyond the studio. Finally in Year 3, you’ll build upon their ideas you explore in years 1 and 2. Greater emphasis is placed not only on a body of resolved, considered and well executed work, but also on work that is ambitious and takes risks. At the end of the year you’ll present work in a degree show that is open to the public. For more information please refer to the website.
