Fine art practice

Fine Art Practice Courses in London

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

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 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 both throughout the course, and in preparing for and mounting the final public exhibition.

Regardless of the subject, 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 on-site, in studio, or via our online learning environment. This ensures a vibrant learning space, with opportunities for all to contribute.
