Fine Art Foundation
Full Time: 1 year, 3 days per week, 10am – 5pm
Part Time: 2 years, 2 days per week, 10am – 5pm
A pre-degree course for those wanting to study art or design at a higher level. This course develops your skills, creativity and conceptual and critical understanding. Unlike other Foundation courses you will have the opportunity to devise your own individually tailored programme, learning the skills relevant to your goals. You will focus on developing a strong portfolio that will give you a good chance of achieving a place at a sought-after art school or University.
As a full time student you will attend 3 tutored days per week at the Academy and undertake a further day independently developing your individual project work. As a part time student you will attend 2 tutored days per week and on average a half day independently developing your individual project work.
This course offers more contact time with tutors than most other Foundation courses available in the UK.
All academic students are able to take advantage of free places on the Academy’s public courses (evening, weekend and short courses). These are available at the discretion of the Academy and subject to availability.*
