About this program

Fine Art

At its core, Fine Art is about communication, innovation, challenge, and application. It is about exploring your individual potential through visual possibilities and theoretical questions with an awareness of the increasingly complex and media-saturated global arena. Our Fine Art degree is for those who have the desire to work hard and the ability to explore ideas through a wide range of media. The course is driven by its core aim; to encourage and enable you to engage with issues and practices across a broad Fine Art spectrum, from the historical to the contemporary.

The Fine Art degree at Liverpool Hope is delivered through three main components: Studio Practice, Art and Design History, and Professional Practice. This combination of studies will equip you with the essential skills to establish yourself as a professional artist, or work in the wider creative industries. Study with us and you will have access to excellent dedicated studios and workshops with a balance of traditional and new media. The Art and Design History element of the curriculum provides a systematic underpinning of Art and Design practices and theories with a strong emphasis on critical thinking.

Through recent partnerships with cultural organisations such as Tate Liverpool and National Museums Liverpool, you can experience an enriched curriculum with visiting lecturers and international artists contributing to your learning experience. The Cornerstone Gallery is used to underpin and inform the student learning across the curriculum through a programe of exhibitions by visiting artists and student work
