Contemporary Issues in the Applied Arts and Design

Creative Skills in a Range of Specialist Areas
The primary goal of the course is to enable students to find their individual identities as designers and applied artists and to help them locate themselves in the wider world in exciting ways. The course is interdisciplinary in nature and we will encourage students to find their own direction whilst actively taking part in the wider creative conversations and debates that happen in the studio.
The course is built around taught workshops, independent studio/workshop activities, seminars, tutorials and lectures utilising the specialist staff and facilities at Bristol School of Art. Students will also be required to engage with research and written work. Organised visits to galleries, museums and workshops will further allow students to develop points of reference for their developing critical and personal design frameworks. Students will also be expected to undertake a work placement during year 2 of the course.
Students will have regular assessments and be given constructive feedback from lecturers and peers.
