Whether you’re a painter, sculptor, video, sound or installation artist you’ll maximise your creative ability and learn how to harness your skills in a professional environment with our Art Foundation Degree.
Our foundation degree contextualises your practice within the reality of the contemporary art industry. As you progress through our programme, you’ll refine your skills in the studio, as well as developing your understanding of art and commerce and how the two can combine to create a career path.
From the start, you’ll exhibit your work. You will have the opportunity to sell your work, visit exhibitions, collaborate with artists, develop media campaigns, work with the public and critically understand the changing art landscape. You will refine your professional practice and tell stories using your artworks as a medium of visual communication.
