Subject

Fine art

This exciting degree is truly equipped to facilitate and develop interdisciplinary and specialist approaches to Fine Art. We are able to provide you with a landscape of outstanding natural and industrial spectacle, and offer a learning environment that teaches and encourages high levels of technical skill, conceptual rigour and contextual awareness.

Our Fine Art degree will introduce you to a wide range of disciplines and material processes that represent the multi-media, inter-disciplinary nature of much contemporary Fine Art. Our tailored learning experience means that we are then able to technically and contextually support your art-making across a number of disciplines or enable you to specialise around a single discipline such as Painting or Drawing.

We will help you to develop a subject matter and creative language that is personal to you and nurture an ongoing understanding and appreciation of contemporary and historic fine art practice and theory. Within the context of the North East’s thriving arts scene, we will also have a professional studies programme that adapts to supports your academic and career ambitions.
