This course will further develop and fine tune your creative talents across your selected specialist art form. Tutors, themselves practicing artists, recognise the breadth of possibilities in contemporary art and will challenge you to develop your own high individual and personally meaningful experimental art practice. Students are expected to initiate and develop their own programme of work with tutorial guidance and technical support.
You will undertake a period of experimentation, research and development in the first term, followed by a period during which you resolve and publically exhibit your artwork. Exhibitions will be held in both the College and in public venues outside the institution. Previous external partners have included tactileBOSCH, Cardiff Made, Red House Gallery and Inkspot Gallery.
Running in parallel to your studio practice and contextual study is an extensive programme of professional studies, which will equip you with the skills to succeed in the artworld. We also benefit from a range of visits to galleries and museums in the UK and abroad.
