Course content

This intensive course allows artists to develop a body of work within the contexts of the studio, audience, production and dissemination.

We encourage applications from artists working in, or wishing to work in, studio-based practice, socially engaged practice, or collaborative practice, as artist curators, as art writers or within art education.

It aims to provide the basis for future professional art practice, curatorial engagement or academic research at a higher level.

You will develop your art practice in purpose built studios, working towards a final exhibition and dissertation, supported by a series of seminars, tutorials, group critiques and a visiting speaker programme.

The course is taught by practising artists, writers and theorists and supported by the region’s internationally recognised resources including The Hepworth Wakefield, the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery, the National Science and Media Museum, The Tetley and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

As well as studio and exhibition work, you will take an optional module to explore critical and theoretical issues such as aesthetics, deconstruction, feminist studies and museum practice.
