Painting and Printmaking with Sandwich Placement

University of Wolverhampton

UCAS Course code W122


The practice of Painting and Printmaking has a long and illustrious tradition in the Wolverhampton School of Art (est.1851)). As a BA (Hons) Painting and Printmaking student you will be able to engage with all the diverse disciplines of contemporary Fine Art practice (including sculpture, conceptual and social practice, film, video, performance, installation and photography) whilst gaining specialist and a deeper learning experience in the specific fields of painting and printmaking.

The aim of the Painting and Printmaking course is to support you to explore both traditional aspects of painting and print as well as to make new alliances with other media and digital imaging techniques. The school of art boasts extensive traditional printmaking studios where you can work in a variety of print mediums and a significant digital print resource. The school also maintains traditional black and white and colour photography dark rooms that may inform your development as a fine art printmaker. The spacious painting studios provide you with the space and time to develop your practice to an ambitious and professional level. A team of professional artists/teachers will support you through workshops and in tutorials to develop an engaged and critical position for your practice.

The Painting and Printmaking course aims to offer an open ended and practice–led approach to learning with students working from conceptual ideas through to the tools and materials of studio production. The course aims to fuse practical and material led practice with critical and contextual exploration. This fusion will enable you to develop a sustainable model of practice as a professional artist and teach you a range of transferable skills relevant to careers in the creative industries. At all levels of the course you will work alongside practicing artists and researchers who aim to teach through their specialist fields.

All courses in the School of Art are now available with a professional placement option (Sandwich Year). A professional placement provides an opportunity for professional development in the work place and as such, greatly enhances the student’s prospects of finding rewarding and relevant employment at the end of their studies. The school assists students in securing work placements, undertaking live briefs, engaging directly with employers and developing key employability skills. The School is committed to raising student awareness of the opportunities that exist post-graduation.

International students will need to apply for the BA (Hons) Fashion course with professional placement before joining the course to ensure visa requirements are met.
