About Creative Art Practice at Sheffield Hallam University

This is a workshop-based course exploring traditional and contemporary art making processes. You develop skills in various 2D and 3D art forms ranging from painting and illustration to casting and furniture making. To develop your ability as an artist or artist-designer, you attend skills-centred workshops with practising artists and skilled technicians. We have modern and well-equipped facilities including * woodworking machinery * metalworking machinery such as welding, foundry and silversmithing equipment * printmaking, which supports activities including etching, drypoint, cyanotype, lithography and screen printing * a photography department with black and white, and colour dark room facilities Drawing is a central part of the course in years one and two. In year one, you take workshops in sculpture and painting, and choose workshops from other 2D and 3D areas such as printmaking and photography.You also* study drawing * gain an introduction to digital software making packages * study art history and theory to help place your practical work in a wider context * learn study and professional skills. During the second year, you develop your practical skills through specialist level workshops. The drawing workshops challenge you to acquire more specialist skills and a higher level of exploration. To continue your professional development, you create your own website and complete a module about exhibiting, commissioning, research and execution. All of the practical modules involve report writing. In year three, you specialise in 2D or 3D work. You prepare a research report for your final degree show, and take a module that develops business and work-based knowledge to help you reach your goals after graduation. You also develop a large portfolio of work, which you exhibit in a professional environment. We try to offer all applicants an interview, where geographically possible. And we like to see samples of your work. Provided you meet our minimum entry requirements, we base our offer on your application, interview and work portfolio.
