Is fine art for you?
The fine art degree is designed to ensure that you are able to gain practical and critical knowledge across a wide range of fine art disciplines. Our degree is centred on individualised student learning and research where students engage with ongoing studio-based experiences. The art history/theory courses will introduce you to current fine art theory and research methods. In the studio course, you will experience 2D Art (including drawing, painting and printmaking), 3D Art (including ceramics, fibres-textiles and sculpture) and photomedia (including traditional, digital and time based media).
Why study with us?
For many of you, you don't choose art, art chooses you. It is something you have to do; it is part of who you are. So the question really is not so much about why, as it is about how and where.
Fine art is undertaken in a stimulating and supportive learning environment. Fine art boasts a vibrant autonomous student exhibition venue (Watt Space Galleries). A superb art gallery is located adjacent to the studios on-campus which hosts national and international exhibitions. Fine art students have access to a number of grants and awards specifically made available to students studying in our degree.
We also have an active artist-in-residence program and benefit from established links with national and international exchange programs. Fine art has excellent studios and workshops across all of the disciplines. It also boasts a paint laboratory, paper and felt making facilities, a bronze casting foundry and a new purpose built photography facility.
This bachelor of Fine Art was revised in 2011 and the new degree commenced in 2012. Please refer to the program handbook. to see the range of courses now offered in the degree.
