Further information

The aims of the Fine Art course are to create meaning through an expressive or inventive artistic response to the visual work, a personal context or social issue. It promotes independence of mind in developing, refining and communicating their own ideas, their own intentions and their own personal outcomes. This is achieved through knowledge, understanding and skills utilising a range of approaches, including Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture, Lens-Based Imagery, Printmaking and Alternative media.

The aims of the Photography course are also to seek an expressive and/or interpretative artistic response to the visual world, which is produced through the aid of lens-based media and may be manipulated by digital technology. Again knowledge, understanding and skill are important as is analysis and written work in this area of study.
