Course summary

Taught by academic staff who are themselves practising artists, historians and theorists, you will be able to study the Fine Art disciplines separately or through interdisciplinary practice. Every Lancaster Fine Art student has their own dedicated studio space from day one, accessible 24/7, day and night.

Our aim from the beginning of your course is for you to become an informed Fine Art practitioner with clear creative aspirations and ambition. You will achieve this through the integration of studio-based art making and the study of both art theory and history. We have a wide ranging view of what fine Art can be in the 21st century and have no ‘house style’. Our emphasis is on Fine Art practice and Fine Art thinking. You will work across painting, drawing, sculpture, digital, live art and their hybrids. Our aim is for you to develop the practice and ideas that best reflect your aims and values as a young Fine Artist.

Your tutors will be professional artists and publishing historians and the mix of academic and creative skills gained at Lancaster makes you highly attractive for postgraduate study and employers.

Getting seen is crucial for those who want to pursue careers in Fine Art. With this in mind, our degree programme ends with both a group exhibition in the university art gallery and a solo show for each student.

Careers

Fine Art graduates from Lancaster University have developed careers as professionals for creative agencies, working in television or for museums and galleries, while some go on to be professional artists.

As well as teaching and arts administration, the multidisciplinary skills our graduates acquire during their Fine Art degree open doors across the creative industries and in many employment sectors.

Lancaster graduates successfully progress onto PGCE, MA, MPhil and PhD courses, either with us or at other high quality national and international institutions, for example the Royal College of Art and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Ghent.
