Develop the skills to become an independent, innovative creative thinker and practitioner and enhance your portfolio and prepare for practice in the expanded field of the contemporary arts. Our MA Fine Art will provide a range of opportunities you to build advanced technical and theoretical problem-solving strategies as well as advanced interpretative abilities.
This course responds to the breadth of professional and research-led opportunities within fine art and will develop your motivations, ambitions and abilities as an artist working within a wide range of media. You will have the opportunity to explore a number of artistic practices including painting, sculpture, print, installation, video, sound, virtual / augmented reality, performance and curating. While a series of collective projects and events will foster your team-working skills, adaptability and resourcefulness.
You will increase your level of engagement through a series of practice modules that will encourage creative enquiry and activity. Your study will be supported by research methodologies, which will allow you to question and better understand your own creative practice and ultimately develop new solutions to disseminate and promote your work.
You will be supported as you flourish into an independent, creative practitioner and thinker. Working collectively, you will develop skills of negotiation, adaptability and resourcefulness preparing you to respond to contemporary challenges in the field of art practice.
