MA Fine Art at NUA provides an intensive and stimulating environment in which to challenge and define your practice through a sustained period of art production and critical engagement. Fundamental to the course is the notion of a practice-led investigation, supported by critical dialogue and appropriate research methods. The course will support you to develop and enhance the intellectual and practical skills you require to generate an art practice of high quality. Strong links with regional and national galleries including The Gallery at NUA, provide platforms for dialogue about contemporary practices, augmented by visiting artists and access to the Fine Art lecture series.
MA Fine Art will enable you to engage in a range of studio practice and students may elect to specialize in or combine areas that include painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and installation. There is potential for students to work collaboratively as well as individually. Fine Art staff are all established practicing artists who regularly exhibit their practice, or contribute to conferences and publications. With access to specialist workshops and facilities, MA Fine Art at NUA will accelerate your practical, technical and conceptual understanding.
