You will learn from professional practising artists, designers, makers and other industry specialists in order to acquire insights and share in their passion and expertise.
You will also engage with ‘enterprise projects’ including public exhibitions, work placements, live commissions, and competitions – all of which will help you to build a professional work-based portfolio to impress employers or be the basis of starting your freelance career.
The aim of the course is that you will become able to initiate and develop your ideas through to fruition - whether that is functioning products, decorative objects, installations or other outcomes.
Subject to coronavirus restrictions, this course offers optional day trips to galleries and longer residential visits, which in recent years have included London and Rome, at an additional expense.
In recent years, UCW art students have also collaborated to stage exhibitions at regional galleries such as 4AD in Bath and Centre Space in Bristol. And we also hold a Festival of Creativity every year so art-lovers in the general public can see the wonderful work produced by our students.
The course is delivered in our Loxton Campus, which is dedicated to the creative and performance arts, and we have invested millions of pounds in our new University Centre in the Winter Gardens on Weston seafront. The new facility includes a higher education library, technology pods for individual and group projects, classrooms, IT suites and social spaces.
Please contact the course leader Ian Shipton UCW’s HEART student services team for more information about this course. And come along to our next Open Day so you can see for yourself how UCW can help you achieve your ambitions.
