The Strathclyde Visual Arts Studio is a new facility set up to support students interested in pursuing a career in Fine Art or Design.
The University of Strathclyde and Glasgow City Council Education Department are delighted to support this course that builds on the success of The Tramway Visual Arts Studio that enabled students to gain acceptance to all of Scotland’s main art schools and other British institutions including Goldsmiths and The Royal College of Art.
Ashlaigh Byrne, Associate Lecturer and Wilma Eaton, PGDE Lecturer in Art and Design, will run the course. It employs the unique approach, developed over many years, of teaching students a wide variety of skills, encouraging them to engage in an experimental and creative process enabling them to produce a highly individual and imaginative portfolio focussed on their specific area of interest.
The course is designed to concentrate on skills and creativity and will cover all of the main disciplinary areas including drawing and painting, printmaking, sculpture and environmental art as well as in depth support for jewellery, textiles, fashion communication design, architectural and interior design. There will also be opportunities to consider more specialised areas including computer graphics and animation.
Students applying to higher education will have focussed support with expert guidance on upload processes, personal statements and advice on interview processes and techniques.
