A quick summary of this course
Fine Artists explore ideas and make them visible. We use photography, ceramics, print, video, knitting, sewing, sound. We use paint, charcoal, wood, metal, clay, plaster, light. The work may be in three dimensions, or in two. It can be a film, a drawing, a photograph, a performance, a walk, a print, a painting, an installation. We can explore the marks we make when we move, the marks objects make when they are moved, the sounds things make. We can explore memory, feelings, folds, layers, stories, maps, colour, journeys. As fine artists we explore the ideas that excite us, whatever they are and we use the materials we think will work best, whatever they may be.
We believe that Professional Practice, the whole business of being an artist, is really important and we make sure that our students develop the essential skills necessary to professional practice including presentation of work, organisation of exhibitions, sale of work, promotion, commissions etc. You will have the opportunity to organise and take part in exhibitions and residencies and to develop the transferable skills that you will need to work as an independent practitioner or to find employment in a range of occupations both within art and design and outside.
