Our Fine Art degree course has an established reputation for excellence in the visual arts. Experimentation, research and exploration are vital to the practice of art and to this end, we encourage awareness of theoretical debates, contemporary practice and the cultural and historical contexts within which we find ourselves.
As a Fine Art student, you will have access to your own dedicated studio space, and our excellent workshop facilities that include inductions to the uses, processes and potential of metal, wood, resin and other sculptural practices as well as the availability of laser and water-jet cutters. There is also access to digital studios and darkrooms, life drawing classes and printmaking facilities.
Regular one-to-one tutorials are available throughout the three years. You will be taught by internationally practising and recognised artists, which draws the professional world closer to your educational experience. This ensures that our course enjoys an excellent working relationship with local and national galleries and museums where there are opportunities to participate in residencies, internships and training and mentoring activities to help develop your career. Recent graduates from Fine Art have gone on to pursue a range of career options, including working as freelance artists, arts administrators, curators, and educators as well as developing various artist-led initiatives.
100% of UWTSD's Fine Art students agreed that staff are good at explaining things.
