Our innovative Fine Art Mixed Media BA will give you the opportunity to explore and develop work across boundaries within the ever-expanding contemporary fine art disciplines.
Our course enables you to work across disciplines or within the more traditionally defined areas of practice, while referencing relevant critical and theoretical debates.
You'll be 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 encourage creativity, individuality and personal growth, and once you've acquired the basic skills, you can negotiate your own individual programme of study with tutors.
We select only the most dedicated and creative students who have the energy, enthusiasm and commitment that our course requires.
Based at our Harrow Campus, you'll work alongside students from film, photography, music, fashion and journalism in a unique hothouse of creative opportunity.
Our studio-based course provides you with a permanent space, depending on the type of work you engage with as you progress through the programme.
You'll be taught by practising artists with national and international profiles working in and across the mediums of sculpture, painting, moving image, performance, photography and sound. Our exceptional team are supported by state-of-the-art facilities and workshops that are at the forefront of current technical innovation.
Our teaching and learning methods will encourage you to create a body of work characterised by personal commitment and an increasing sense of autonomy.
Our teaching methods include lectures, tutorials (individual and group), presentations, crits, workshops, and gallery visits and talks.
