Worcester’s Fine Art programmes value thoughtfulness, experiential enquiry and visual poetry.
From the outset, students work using diverse processes and methods: critical and contextual studies, drawing, object making and online and time-based media are integral to learning. Beginning with shared themes of enquiry (‘landscape’, ‘place’, ‘narrative’, ‘journeys’), in your first year you review your previous experience and engage with art making through personal experimentation, workshops and set projects. In your second year, ongoing critical enquiry develops your individual visual language. This is consolidated in the third year through development of work for public exhibition and of the curatorial skills required to present your own and others’ work.
There is continuous emphasis on students’ growing knowledge and understanding of contemporary fine art internationally, and we regularly host artists in residence.
