Glasgow School of Art: Fine Art Practice (Painting)

Institution Glasgow School of Art
Department School of Fine Art
Telephone 0141 353 4500
Study type Taught


The specialist pathway is primarily focused on the study and practice of painting. The course aims to provide a stimulating environment that both fosters discourse between students and encourages critical reflection and experimentation. A series of lectures and seminars, reflecting a variety of theoretical and historical perspectives on both painting and the other pathway specialisms, are designed to inform debate. Other issues the course will engage with include the significant realignment of painting in response to the proliferation of fine art media that has occurred in recent decades. Students are provided with dedicated, shared studios and will have access to the School's technical workshops. An introduction to research concepts and skills will enable students to approach their studio projects with assurance, founded on a coherent, personal methodology. On completion of the course students are expected to have achieved a high level of maturity, confidence and professionalism that will sustain them in their future careers.
