The BA Fine Arts program emphasizes support of creative development with a dynamic and contemporary approach to fine arts, preparing students to become innovative professional artists. The Fine Arts program fosters a distinctive experiential learning process providing key knowledge, skills and attitudes in the field of fine arts. Introductory core fine arts studio workshops equip students with the fundamental proficiencies in sculpture, painting, photography, print making, art histories and theories. In the intermediate stage students acquire knowledge of fine arts concepts and contemporary fine arts practice, gaining the ability to produce meaningful works of art and contextualizing their studio work within contemporary fine arts discourse. Students are encouraged to reflect and focus their research towards a self-directed studio research project supported by abilities in core fine art areas, choosing to work in one medium, or to combine media forming an interdisciplinary practice. In the advanced stage students further develop and consolidate a coherent line of intellectual inquiry to develop an area of fine arts research which integrates studio with concepts, theories, and professionalism.
