Summary

The MA Fine Art course at City & Guilds of London Art School focuses on a deep exploration of your own practice and its research territories and critical frameworks. Whether you are continuing after recently graduating in Fine Art or returning to study after some years as a practising artist (or from working in another related field), our aim is to help you to move beyond your current position, to exceed your expectations. We don’t believe in a ‘house style’; this is an Art School where your ambitions will be interrogated and supported and the end of year MA exhibition consistently demonstrates the distance our students have travelled through engagement in this intensive course.

The Course runs from September to September, twelve months for full time students and over 2 years for part time students. Full-time students are based in large well lit studio spaces in the Art School, opposite Kennington tube station, while part-time students are expected to have their own studio base with access to our workshops and other facilities. Part-time students are allocated summer studio spaces in their final year leading up to the MA shows when the final module is taken at a full-time pace. They may also be able to work in studios at the Art School at the end of their first year.

The main objective of the course is to both challenge and support you to identify, develop and refine your individual practice. Evaluation and review through group and individual discussion with a wide range of tutors enables you to identify critical models and areas of research appropriate to your work. The course comprises three main areas of activity; studio practice, professional practice and critical aesthetics.

STUDIO TEACHING

Studio teaching focuses on contextualisation, process into practice and realisation. Tutorials, group critiques and both peer and tutor led events and sessions sets out to equip you with the practical and theoretical knowledge and experiences necessary for the development of an ambitious body of work, concluding in a public exhibition.

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE

Professional Practice workshops, visits and seminars delivered by artists, critics, gallerists and other art world professionals will help you to critique approaches and construct your own strategies for professional practice to sustain your art practice in the future.

CRITICAL AESTHETICS

Critical Aesthetics Seminars run alongside studio discussion and consider historic precedents and contemporary practices, theories and debates, supporting you to develop a framework for your research that will form the basis for the Critical Model Dissertation that explores key themes related to your practice. You will be supported by a personal dissertation supervisor, a member of the Art Histories team on of our experts.
