What will I learn?

From painting and sculpture through to performance and the moving image, there are lots of ways you can express yourself creatively. Our Contemporary Art BA(Hons) course gives you the opportunity to learn about current fine art techniques and practices in a stimulating environment and encourages you to see your work in a wider context. Why study Contemporary Art? * The course is flexible so there’s plenty of scope to find the best route for you. * We’ll give you the support to translate your ideas, however complex or ambitious, onto paper, film or whatever other media you’re using. * You’ll have the chance to work collaboratively or independently in our studios, and use facilities across disciplines in the iconic new Barbara Hepworth Building. * Be introduced to the current debates and issues in contemporary art. The course is part of a suite of three courses that also includes Illustration BA(Hons) and the combined Contemporary Art and Illustration BA(Hons). Art is an adventure. Your initial choice should excite you but can be adapted throughout your time on the course. Professional links and accreditation: During this course you can benefit from the opportunity to gain the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) accreditation in addition to your degree, at no extra cost. This is a globally recognised accreditation awarded by one of the leading software package providers to the creative industries, so could be valuable in your professional career. This accreditation is attractive to a number of employers and so it could give you a competitive edge in the job market. To be awarded the ACA accreditation, you’ll need to pass an online test. Additional Costs - Materials: Basic materials (pens, pencils, brushes, charcoal, canvas and paper) are provided for students. However, if you choose to work with more specialist materials, you will need to provide these yourself. This could be anything from oil paints to building materials, software, DVDs, steel, etc. and depends on your choice of contemporary art practice. The estimated cost of specialist materials is £60 (Year 1), £100 (Year 2) and £200 (Year 3).
