Why Should I Study Fine Art at Lancaster?
The Fine Art degree at Lancaster is built on an innovative and ambitious studio culture and support for a wide range of approaches from the cutting edge to conventional. Our aim from the beginning of your studies is to support your creative aspirations and ambitions. We produce informed practitioners - artists knowledgeable about contemporary art and ideas, and clear and determined in their own aims and goals. We do this through the integration of studio practice, art history, theory and professional practice. This combination equips you with the skills needed throughout your career, whether you continue as an artist, curator, academic or as a professional in the wider art economy.
Students follow core and optional courses that mix cutting-edge contemporary research with studio and lab-based artwork. Painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, digital, live and sound art, may be pursued singly or together as an interdisciplinary practice.
Art maintains high standards of provision and resources. From day one of the degree, all students have a dedicated space with 24/7 access. Our purpose-built studios include AV seminar facilities, digital art lab and installation space, fully equipped wood/metal workshop and life-room. All staff are active researchers, either as artists or writers, publishing and exhibiting nationally and internationally.
