BA Fine Art at UCC School of Art

The BA (Hons) in Fine Art studio at UCC School of Art is a central element of the course. Not only does the studio provide the ideal large scale, open plan and flexible physical space to develop your creative voice, but the supportive and collaborative ethos of the studio, is equally vital. Students across all three years understand and appreciate the importance of this critical framework and the studio as a dynamic part of the course itself.

The fine art studio incorporate all years in one large, double height space. With the excellent cohort sizes, each student is afforded a good individual space alongside a year-based communal space. Although generally open, the studio does include a specialist dark space for project, video or installation work to be explored independently or in a taught session.

The UCC School of Art incorporates a number of specialist, studio-led spaces which are utilised for a variety of learning formats, to best support student development and provide a range of learning environments suitable for the module. Further information below.

The Fine Art Studio, is the designated BA Fine Art space within the UCC School of Art. The predominately open plan studio incorporates all years into a large, light and flexible space.

This format provides a dynamic studio ethos, whereupon dialogue and collaboration can occur. Each cohort is provided with a individual and group working studio for both full and part time students.
