Carmarthen School of Art is known for its ‘family’ atmosphere, we offer an open door policy where students are encouraged to discuss proposed modules with experienced tutors before formalising their programme of study. Class sizes are small and tutor contact is second to none. You will have and individual workspace and access to specific studios and workshops linked to the departments you intend to study across. Please refer to Programme Descriptor and Features specific to your two chosen specialist degree departments for further information.
The course supports the development of your studio practice with an emphasis on craft and skill. Lectures and contextual dialogue enables you to position yourself and your practice in terms of art history and contemporary critical thought, so that you will be equipped with the tools to map and research your own interests. Frequent opportunities for public exhibitions, events, competitions and live projects (depending on modules selected) prepare you professionally for a wide range of potential careers.
All these skills are transferable across a range of professional contexts. Students attend workshops during their first year where they learn skills by means of experimentation in a relaxed and inclusive teaching environment.
