Fine Art

Degree and postgraduate-level fine art distance learning 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.
