BA(Hons) Fine Art is a studio-centred course based at Spike Island, an internationally renowned contemporary art venue in the heart of Bristol. It's a vibrant creative environment where you'll get to connect with professional artists.
Benefit from free studio space and a range of work and volunteering opportunities, as well as excellent facilities at Bower Ashton Studios.
Choose from two pathways - Fine Art or Art and Visual Culture.
- Fine Art develops your practice in areas such as painting, sculpture, installation, performance, video and digital media.
- Art and Visual Culture critically engages you with your practice as you produce art works and written text, underpinned by theoretical perspectives.
All our staff are active practitioners, with the conceptual, technical and professional skills to support a wide variety of approaches.
