About this program

BA (Hons) Creative Art and Design Practice

The BA (Hons) Creative Art & Design Practice ‘top-up’ year builds upon the unique entrepreneurial ethos and production of contemporary, professional quality work that is initially addressed in the FdA Program.

This course seeks to develop and facilitate your independent and experiential learning through a range of opportunities, both project-based and self-directed in a stimulating and exciting environment. There will be a continued emphasis on your development of a focused, innovative, individual specialist practice within the creative industries, for example; fine art, printmaking, illustration, photography, textiles, glass or ceramics.

The course is both academically challenging, developing theoretical awareness of contemporary and vocationally relevant practice with a good balance of creative and academic work, being roughly two-thirds practical and one-third theoretical.

There will be a public exhibition as a conclusion to the course and a specific module has been designed to encourage self-promotion in a current creative manner considering online opportunities and the development of entrepreneurial acumen.

You’ll study in Leek School of Art which is steeped in art and design history dating back to 1884. The new William Morris building has state-of-the-art facilities with studio and workshop spaces that are light and spacious and have all the latest equipment.
