Qualifications

Overview

Initial studies in Painting proceed from a mix of traditional and contemporary painting practice. Students are encouraged to develop a sound grasp of the rationale belonging to such practices and a practical knowledge of the basic formal issues that guide them.

Advanced studies are designed to encourage students to deal with more recent painting practice in depth so that, by the time their studies have completed, they are able to maintain a high level of personally-directed activity consistent with established practice in their field.

There is strong competition for places in the Intermediate Year (first year) of the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) – see the degree page for information on entry requirements and how to apply.
