The Fine Art course at Loughborough offers an exciting way for you to investigate, participate in and contribute ideas to the field of contemporary art. It uses both practical and theoretical classes to develop your unique and individual artistic abilities, and fosters your creative skills by developing your critical and analytical insight. The Fine Art course emphasises the relationship between practice and theory, enabling cognitive skills to be intrinsic to studio based practice, where exceptional facilities and expertise supports a range of Fine Art practices, ranging from drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, moving image, photography, to temporal performance. With particular focus on the connections between art, culture and politics, in relation to the public sphere, sustainability, environmental aesthetics, and identity in a global community, a degree in Fine Art provides students with a wide array of transferable skills and employment opportunities within a wide sphere of the creative industries. Alongside the freedom to express your imaginative ideas using a variety of media, the Fine Art course is fully supported by experienced and expert staff who help develop your thinking, respond to your work and challenge you to understand the wider cultural and critical fields within which it resides. In particular, we explore art and politics, issues of the public sphere, sustainability and eco/environmental aesthetics, gender, sexuality and identity in global art, performance and live practice, and, with the University Arts Centre’s course RADAR, contemporary curating.
