Why study Art?
Art is part of the Creative Arts course, so you will select another subject to study with Art. Attention is always paid to the interaction of Art with the various subject combinations within Creative Arts - for instance if you decide to combine Art and Textiles the subject may function in a different way than if you choose Art and Dance. Adventurous students who would like to have a broader experience of Art should apply for this course. Attention is always paid to the interaction of Art with the various subject combinations within Creative Arts.

If applying for a combination of Art, Textiles, Ceramics and Visual Design, then we would invite you for an interview and ask you to bring a portfolio of creative work with you to support your application.
The course is a combination of studio practice, workshop, seminar and lecture programmes – which inform the contextual aspects of the course. You will develop the creative and critical skills needed to articulate your work as an individual artist. You’ll have the option to explore a broad range of approaches to making contemporary art; painting; print making (silk screen, etching, relief printing and lithography); photography; video; animation; sculpture; performance; digital media (using industry standard programmes involved in image making).
Facilities are excellent, and there are dedicated workshops within the School of Art and Design to support the above activities.
Professional Practice is extremely important and in Year 2 you have the option of organising and participating in a public group exhibition in a gallery in Bath. A series of talks by visiting lecturers and practitioners from the industry supports this module.
An important emphasis within the Art subject is on critical theory and research to support studio practice. We assume you are primarily artists driven by the desire to create and much of your time will be taken up by making. Yet we believe that as contemporary practitioners research and critical skills are vital, informing and supporting your studio practice.
You will need energy and commitment in day to day working and versatility moving between different media and teaching styles.
Typical career opportunities include gallery administration, media, community-based art work, art administration, teaching or self-employment in the creative industries.
