    FdA Fine Art Skills and Practices


    Stage 1

    In the first year, the studio and workshop programme will help you confirm and develop your particular interests, strengths and knowledge through a range of units. You will study drawing, printmaking, sculpture and undertake workshops in black & white photography and digital media for recording and documenting. During the final term of Stage 1 you will embark on the first period of Work Based Learning during which you will both apply and extend your proficiency within a specific work related environment.

    Stage 2

    In the second year, the workshops will give you the opportunity to build upon the skills you acquired in drawing, printmaking and sculpture. There will be studio based group discussions to advance your critical and communication skills. In addition to your own individual practice, you will be expected to help initiate and negotiate collaborative projects. The studio and workshop will be the location for the group discussions and critiques, which will improve your critical, communication and presentation skills. Stage 2 places a strong emphasis on an explorative and investigative practice within the wider community. Much of the learning takes place outside the workshop/studio through case-studies, field trips, museum, gallery and artist studio visits. Stage 2 Work Based Learning will follow your personal proposal. You will need to play an active role in negotiating the context and will be expected to plan, initiate and complete a critical evaluation of the experience in relation to your own practice. The final unit of the course is designed to help you focus your portfolio and professional practice in preparation for future employment.
