The Advanced Course programme is focused on developing skills essential to the successful development of sustainable studio practice. This is an intensive programme of study with discussion and research based development, including taught units and independent projects. Complimented with visits to celebrated artists studios, developing work comprises practical and theoretical thinking and the production of series of work that may include painting, 2D and 3D forms, print designs and lens based media. The courses provide an opportunity to question your current thinking, challenging perceptions to explore or find a new location. This year’s students are involved in active practice, working from professional studios or working from the art school itself.
