Britain’s creative industries are worth £92 billion, employ 2 million people and are growing twice as fast as the rest of the economy. This course will give you the skills to join this growing industry.
The tradition of Art runs deep at Sunderland, but we don’t stand still. We’ve built on this history and experience, adding innovation and modern teaching approaches to create a course that gives our graduates the edge.
Our Fine Art team, all working artists, have a wealth of professional practice and subject expertise to help you realise your art aspirations. Guided by these experts you will have the freedom to explore your creative interests across a broad range of Fine Art practice including painting, printmaking, digital photography, film, sound, drawing, sculpture and performance.
Working collaboratively, you’ll learn to see the bigger picture and will develop highly adaptable skills, alongside your technical abilities. Throughout the course you’ll work towards live outcomes, building your confidence as an artist to promote yourself, your art and to understand the impact you can have as an artist in society.
From studio to public show
The BA (Hons) Fine Art Degree Show celebrates a plethora of creative practice and for many of our students is their first major public exhibition. The exhibition also represents a significant transition in an artist’s practice as work leaves the secure studio for an exposed public space. This is a move away from the familiar working environment and a departure from a busy studio space shared with lecturers, technicians and fellow artists. The degree show breaks free from this space. The public exhibition has the excitement of a stage debut, where work has to stand alone and speak for itself.
