What is Fine Art?
Fine Art at the University of Sunderland encourages students to discover and develop their individual position and ideas within the context of contemporary art.
Why Sunderland for Fine Art?
- Over 100 years of Fine Art at Sunderland
- Personal studio space with access to digital, video, sound editing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, woodwork and metalwork facilities
- Your learning is tailored to your interests and talents
Fine Art has a long history in Sunderland - it has been studied here since the 1860s. This long tradition gives today's courses a rich inheritance and connection to the proud history of art education in the UK.
Our Fine Art courses will help you to develop your intellectual and technical abilities, maximise your creative potential and generate a professional working practice.
You will be allocated a personal studio space and you have access to digital, video, sound editing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, woodwork and metalwork facilities. This will prepare you for working in the public and community, and as an individual studio artist.
There is no 'house style' and great care is taken to encourage you to discover and realise your interests and ambitions within Fine Art.
