Fine Art
This interdisciplinary 3 year study of Fine Art encourages a flexible approach to Fine Art practice. The course welcomes the challenge of the fast-changing cultural and social environment of today's post-industrial era. The focus of the Fine Art programme is to provide its students with a solid foundation in the visual arts and to build a broad-based experience of Fine Art study with an emphasis on idea/concept development.
Research into many possible approaches of visual disciplines is promoted, such as: painting, sculpture, installation, photo media, digital imaging, video/film, performance art. From the vast field of Fine Art practice students can choose their preferred media or method to facilitate realisation of their ideas and creative goals. The aim of the course is to develop the creative potential of our students through a balance of practical work and research. The AVA programme is suitable for open-minded students willing to consider a range of media and practices – from painting, sculpting, installation, performance art, to film and video. The course fuses new theories and technologies and well established practices, such as: objective drawing, painting, modelling, photography, film, video, installation, performance art, digital imaging.

Conceptualisation of Space

Conceptualisation of Space is a 3 year programme, based on art practices that combine theatre, film, video, architecture and fine art. Students are encouraged to take full control of the visual aspects of production using a variety of modes of communication – for example drawing, computer imaging, scale models – in a range of professional contexts. The course considers a combination of new theories and technologies as well as well established practices, such as: objective drawing and modelling, making of storyboards, scale models, technical plans, and digital imaging. The course is suitable for all those who wish to develop their confidence, skills and knowledge in the use of space and the action within it. It is aimed at students who may wish to work in film/video directing and design, theatre design and directing, TV design, puppet design, fabrication and directing, prop making, animation, film / video, and the art of performance.
