The Fine Art course at Wolverhampton is an intensive studio-based programme, supported by technical workshops, theoretical engagement and a wide range of study visits and opportunities to promote and exhibit your work along the way. The Fine Art team aim to:
At level 1 you will have freedom to explore your own ideas in a supportive environment, working across all media specialisms. You will be encouraged to develop your making and thinking through technical workshops and the study of historical and theoretical issues.
At level 2 you will develop a more independent approach to Fine Art practice and the course structure will allow you to deepen your understanding of your chosen medium and establish the critical framework for your practice within a global market. You will also have the opportunity to engage in placements and exhibitions reflecting your interests and career aspirations.
Intensive studio practice is core to Level 3, but you will also have the opportunity to explore in depth the specific relationship between medium, technique and theory in your own studio work. This is developed through tutorials, group seminars, extended writing projects and presentations to your peers. The course culminates in the Degree Show exhibition. This public event is widely attended, and is your launch pad for the future.
We aim to produce informed, independent and reflective fine art practitioners who can adapt knowledge, understanding and skills for a variety of professional contexts. On completion of this degree a vast number of options will be open to you including becoming a practising artist, work in arts administration, curation, publishing, public art, teaching and other art and design related careers. Alternatively, you may choose to continue with your studies at postgraduate level.
