BSA Visual Arts Foundation is a one year course providing an extensive grounding in the Visual Arts. This is a structured studio program incorporating drawing, painting, printmaking, 3d studies, design principles, art history and creative thinking. The course is designed to help you acquire the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to help form an integrated understanding of contemporary ideas and practices. This course will introduce researching tools for those wishing to follow up with VAP and VARP. Whether you are starting out, or you are a more experienced artist needing to develop your skills and art practice, this course provides a solid foundation. The primary focus of all our teaching is on the individual.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

A flexible course structure makes it possible to work with each student and be specific about their requirements and artistic development. All our teachers are experienced educators with nationally recognised art practices. Course activities include studio work, field trips, gallery visits, guest lecturers, group exhibitions and more.
