Advanced fine art

Advanced Fine Art Practice Courses in London

Advanced fine art courses encompass a wide range of creative practices, approaches and techniques, from traditional drawing and painting to contemporary, concept-led, media-based and experimental work, across a range of forms and media.

While a number of our courses at this level are predicated on the traditional disciplines, and focus on developing and enhancing existing technical skills and material processes, others primarily examine and allow opportunities for engagement with ideas and concepts, and the development of a conceptually-driven art practice. All our advanced fine art courses are taught by professionals with independent practices and profiles as artists, exhibitors or researchers, whose experience will be invaluable throughout the course, in preparing for the final public exhibition, and in advising on appropriate progression routes into independent or professional practice.

Regardless of the fine art specialism, course content is underpinned by historical, theoretical and contextual elements, and all courses have a strong emphasis on group learning, engagement and critical debate in a shared studio context, and on peer learning and feedback, whether in studio, or via our online learning environment, which supports the delivery of every course. This ensures a vibrant learning space, with opportunities for all to contribute.
