Contemporary Art and Illustration BA(Hons)

All art school students spend the final year of their degree program working towards and looking forward to the final degree show as the celebratory culmination of three years of work. The final degree show is also a crucial element in the process of the student developing a studio practice that is critical enough, robust enough, and imaginative enough to be pursued beyond art school. 

This has meant that as students and tutors we have had to adapt our thinking and refresh our approach towards studio teaching, studio practice and the dissemination of our work. Studios have had to become the corners of rooms where we live, garden sheds and whole rooms were taken over by art making. Tutorials had to carried out online and group crits over Teams meetings where attendance might be from a sitting room, bedrooms, kitchen tables and back gardens. 

And so here we are—proud of our student’s achievements, their desire to develop studio practice amongst radically altered conditions and the evolution of their art practice, and yet we’ve barely spent time in real geographic space together.
