Degree and postgraduate-level fine art distance learning courses with OCA
The study of fine art at the OCA focuses on the core media within fine art – drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
While acknowledging the historical atelier-based, fine art approach, study in this area builds on and respects the traditional, as well as providing opportunities to explore contemporary approaches. Learners are given the chance to develop their own fine art practice that draws upon their chosen references, applications and techniques, historical, traditional and contemporary sources, and allows them to craft a space in which to inhabit fine art today.
If this sounds like the study for you, our BA (Hons) Fine Art degree has what you need or, if you’re looking to take your art to the next level, our MA Fine Art degree could be the answer.
What are distance learning fine art courses?
Online fine art courses offer the same content and assessment as a standard fine art course but allow you to carry out your studies from home so you can balance your distance learning fine art course alongside your personal and professional commitments.
Distance learning fine art courses are also a great option if you’re looking to study part time while you work or manage parenting or caring responsibilities. Study at a pace that suits you and continue to develop your creative skills, broaden your knowledge, and build a dynamic portfolio.
