Course summary

**The course considers fine art in its widest sense, this means you can test out many different approaches or choose to specialise in one.** At AUB you have full creative control. This course considers fine art in its widest sense, which means you can test out many different approaches or choose to specialise in one. Experimental workshops in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, video, digital media and sonic arts provide you with a solid foundation in testing the physical and conceptual potential of materials that you can then develop further. **What you will learn**Our course fosters a flexible and entrepreneurial attitude by encouraging the consideration of the broader cultural environment to help you find and understand your place within it; you will leave as an independent thinker with confidence in your own practice. BA (Hons) Fine Art provides a framework in which developing artists can question existing forms and methodologies; use, adapt them and invent new strategies in order to express their individual ideas and concepts. The course is committed to promoting dialogue and practice across discipline boundaries by nurturing communities of practice within a diverse and pluralistic studio environment and by collaborating with other specialists, agencies and organisations on a local or international level. The course celebrates and engages with the important role that Fine Art plays in a world of growing political fluidity, acknowledging that the cultural arena is one of rapidly accelerating change. The course is outward-looking and believes in the permeable nature of the fine art studio. An entrepreneurial attitude is fostered within the course in order to encourage you to engage with the wider cultural environment in an ambitious, provocative and professional manner. Our philosophy is to integrate theory and practice. You will be encouraged to learn, discover and make creative decisions through making, in whatever medium is most appropriate to your ideas. Alongside the practical development of your practice, you will be asked to investigate and research artists and critical thinking which are relevant to your own work. There will be organised lectures and seminars throughout your course and these are designed to give you a good understanding of historical and contemporary contexts which shape current debates and discourse in Fine Art.Approximately 60% of your time will be contact hours, including scheduled teaching sessions, but also supervised time in the workshop or studio. 100% of assessment for this course is coursework based.**You can choose to complete your degree in one of the following named awards:**- Fine Art (Interactive Arts)- Fine Art (Urban and Public Art)- Fine Art (Drawing)- Fine Art (Curatorial Practice) **By the end of the course you will be able to...** - Challenge the boundaries of existing subject knowledge in defining your own practice.
