Course Information

Throughout this Fine Art Painting and Drawing course, your ideas will be nurtured and developed by a close relationship with our team of specialists, visiting artists and other students.

You will graduate with a unique balance of critical, practical and creative skills. This course will give you the opportunity to explore the practices of painting and drawing in depth, developing an awareness of historical precedent and contemporary issues, which would not be available to you in a multi-disciplinary art course. You will be taught through studio practice, specialist media workshops, professional study components and a program of lectures and seminars. The course in its entirety will give you an informed and critical understanding of contemporary practices and debates.

Above all, the course encourages you to develop a creative and critical intelligence capable of integrating innovative thinking with practical ability. You will benefit from spacious and well-equipped facilities and links to the Milton Keynes Gallery, NN Contemporary Art (Northampton), Corby Cube Gallery and Rugby Museum and Art Gallery. There are also trips involved in the course, which have included France, Italy, Spain, India and the USA. All of our staff are practicing artists who publish and exhibit nationally and internationally. We have regular visits from innovative arts organizations such as Artangel and internationally renowned artists including Richard Long, Ian Davenport, Mark Francis, Jenny Saville, Marcus Harvey, Dan Hays, Michael Landy, Richard Deacon, Ian McKeever and Richard Wilson.
