This innovative course was one of the first to offer students the opportunity to explore and develop work across boundaries, within the ever-expanding contemporary fine art disciplines. It encourages creativity, individuality and personal growth, and once you have acquired the basic skills you can negotiate your own individual programme of study with tutors.
You are encouraged to bring highly individual approaches to studio practice, coupled with an emphasis on experiential learning; these are the defining factors that have established the course at the cutting edge of contemporary practice.
We select only the most dedicated and creative students who have the energy, enthusiasm and commitment that the course requires. Our exceptional team of practising artists teaching theory and practice are supported by state-of-the-art facilities and workshops that are at the forefront of current technical innovation.
Based at the recently refurbished Harrow Campus – home to the Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design – you will work alongside students from film, photography, music, fashion and journalism, in a unique hothouse of creative opportunity.
The course enables you to work across disciplines or within the more traditionally de?ned areas of practice, and relevant critical and theoretical debates are referenced to support this.
This studio-based course provides you with a permanent space, depending on the type of work you engage with as you progress through the programme.
The teaching team are all practising artists with national/international profiles working in and across the mediums of sculpture, painting, moving image, performance, photography and sound. Teaching and learning methods encourage you to create a body of work characterised by personal commitment and an increasing sense of autonomy.
Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials (individual and group), presentations, crits, workshops, and gallery visits and talks.
