Specialising after doing a Fine Art degreeWatch
Hey, so i have applied for BA fine art at various universities as I like how diverse and experimental fine art is. Lets say I wanted to specialise more into one area after my degree i.e in concept art or something. Could I do something like concept art with a fine art degree?
BA (Hons) Fine Art is one of the most broad and open creative courses there is, simply because the term 'Fine Art' encompasses SO many different areas, mediums, and techniques. On the BA (Hons) Fine Art course at Plymouth College of Art, students learn about creating art in 2D, 3D, 4D and hybrid means. There are workshops on sound drawing, performance painting, scale-sculpture, performance, physical performance, video, projection-mapping, traditional and digital print-making, casting, welding, and critical and reflective writing. This will be similar across many Universities that teach Fine Art, and you will find that wherever you choose to go, the course will be incredibly broad in the possibilities of specialisms. You are allowed to specialise in whatever you choose, and PCA students are actively encouraged to be experimental, bold, and diverse in their creative studies in order to really discover what excites them within their creative field. The first year of the three year bachelors degree is there for experimentation, learning, discovering, and exploring your chosen field, with second and third years there for you to decide and begin to embark on your chosen specialism. If you find that you really love creating conceptual art pieces, then this is certainly something you could explore within the bracket of the Fine Art degree. However, if you are more interested in creating concept art in terms of character and environment concept art for animation, games, and film, then perhaps a different course such as BA (Hons) Animation & Games would be better for you.
I hope this helps and please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
