Course Outline

Our Foundation Degree in Fine Art is based at the Bristol School of Art, Queens Road in Clifton. The School occupies the right hand wing of the Royal West of England Academy. An art school has existed here since the mid nineteenth-century and we have an established reputation for offering high quality education across a range of creative disciplines.

This vibrant and diverse course offers you the chance to engage with contemporary fine art practice. You will have the opportunity to experiment and specialise in a range of different media including printmaking, painting, drawing, sculpture, lens-based processes, 3D processes, installation, performance and digital processes.

The course is underpinned by an established programme of drawing and contextual lectures which will help you to underpin your developing creative practice.

Aspects of Study:

The course is built around taught workshops, independent studio/workshop activities, seminars, tutorials and lectures and requires students to engage with research and written work as well as designing and making.

Organised visits to galleries, museums, workshops and other cultural sites of local and national importance. Students will be offered the opportunity to undertake a study visit to a European city.

Assessment will be carried out through coursework, essays, reflective journals, presentations and work produced for exhibition/commission.

At the end of the second year of your course you will have the option to leave to seek employment in the creative industries or alternatively you can ‘top-up’ your Foundation Degree to a full BA (Hons) by continuing your studies with us*, or at a University.
