Fine Art BA (Hons)

Fine Art BA

The focus of the BA Fine Art degree is not only to develop you as a student and critical thinker, but to inspire your growth into a skilled and intellectual artist. These attributes, which are dependent on one another, combined with practical experience and an understanding of the fine art industry, will form the beginning of your career, and stand you in the strongest possible position to carry it forward.

Fine Art is a subject for ambitious and motivated students who wish to explore and interpret their experience of the world through physical or ephemeral objects, writings or actions. 

At the Cardiff School of Art and Design (CSAD) we offer contemporary Fine Art practice that is innovative and current but which is mindful of its historical context and informed by traditional skills. Our programme is intended for those whose ambition is to practice as a professional artist, to work as a professional in the creative industries or in education.

Whilst your learning is designed to develop you into a rounded and capable artist and intellectual, your curriculum is similarly structured with your potential in mind.

As such, the emphasis that will have been placed upon your work ethic, both creatively and academically, is matched with significant focus on real world experience; from building contacts and undertaking placements to live briefs and, should you choose so, support in forming your own business.

You can elect to take a route through your second and final years of studies where you can engage with businesses or prepare to launch your own for the moment you graduate. In your final year, rather than submit a dissertation, you have the option of devising a detailed business plan.

Throughout your time at CSAD, you will be meeting and hearing from professionals within your industry, honing your skills and ideas for commercial and professional advantage. Cross-disciplinary projects will prepare you for teamwork later on, whilst live briefs will prepare you for deadlines and the demands of tight specifications.

Undergraduate costs of study in CSAD 

Materials 

CSAD provides a variety of basic materials. These enable students to develop their competence in a range of skills and demonstrate their technical ability. Materials needed in unusual quantities, or those that are specialised, expensive or unusual are at the student’s expense. Advice will be given about how ‘unusual’ is defined, which materials are deemed to be ‘expensive’, and examples given of what is viewed to be ‘unusual’. CSAD students often elect to spend on materials they prefer to work with, including sketchbooks and pens, as well as specialist equipment of their own choosing. 

In the main, no charges are made for the use of equipment, with the exception of some specialist high end equipment such as the Mimaki and 3D printers. Access to Cardiff FabLab‚?? is subject to student membership; it offers reduced fees for student use.
