Student Thoughts: BA(Hons) Fine Art

We spoke to BA (Hons) Fine Art students past and present about what they learned throughout their studies.

Lynda Buchan

The skills from practical classes were highly beneficial; exploring new techniques every semester, which developed my creative practice, along with meaningful critical and theoretical study, established a deeper understanding of my chosen subject. The course curriculum also provided opportunities for professional practice working on projects in partnership with Moray School of Art and openings to work within the industry that offered excellent working experience and connections for prospects after graduation.

Olga Dean Hart

On one side I’ve learned new technics such as print making, developing analogue and digital photography. We did life drawings, experimental painting and contextual studies.  On another side I’ve learned how to meet new people in the art world. As a part of our professional practice, we organised our own exhibitions and went to see others in the different museums and venues.  We had a unique chance of working with the Elgin Cathedral giving us a chance to experience what a commission work might be like.

Duncan May

A much deeper knowledge of the art world and art history; developing the skills to have a professional practice and skills to explore and develop ideas; a lot of self-lead learning and technique learning; and opportunities for external workshops, see others professional artistic practices and field trips to see art exhibitions.
