Drawing skills, including lecturer demonstration in the life class. As the course progresses there is an increasingly pluralistic philosophy, accommodating diversity of approaches - including figurative and abstract painting, as well as sculpture and site specific art projects. Weekly Art History sessions are also delivered, encouraging you to evaluate your practice.

Assessment: assignments and work submitted assessed at the end of each semester, external examiner at end of academic year.

Modules

This course is delivered at our TyneMet Coast Road campus. The course is skills based and validated by Pearson, Edexcel, embracing a broad range of Fine Art activities. It focuses on a broad range of fine art practice and you will learn a number of skills that are required to work in the art and design industry. Academic staff are practicing artists with national and international profiles. Their knowledge and experience are utilised to teach and demonstrate a number of specialisms including life drawing and sculpture.

Units are devised to enable the development of appropriate skills, nurturing an underpinning framework for diverse approaches, which are process-led. These include experimental methods of drawing, painting, sculpture and digital media.

During each year of their students will be given the opportunity to exhibit work, including temporary public art – works in place for 1 year in regional venues, providing an excellent platform for their creativity, which can be listed on students’ CVs. In addition to both private and public commissions, artists find work in many industries, including artists residencies, selling work through commercial galleries, teaching, leading art groups in hospitals, running community arts programmes, illustration and working for galleries and museums.

Some of the sessions are taught through demonstration (e.g. life drawing) as well as individual discussion/guidance.

Weekly Art History sessions are also delivered, encouraging you to evaluate your practice from a historical context.

These opportunities are unpaid, but great for your CV, helping to boost your employability in relation to paid commission opportunities for qualified artists after you graduate
