Art and Photography
Art and Photography.
Learning through and about the arts enriches the experience of studying as well as preparing students for life after school. Art and Photography encourages self-expression and creativity and builds confidence as well as a sense of individual identity.
It provides students with opportunities to explore a range of media whilst exploring and critically analysing the work of Artists and Photographers. Students develop skills using both traditional media and modern technologies, which challenges, excites and enthuses our students to foster a life-long love of the arts and build their cultural capital.
Our students will leave NUAST capable of confidently engaging with art cultures, ensuring they appreciate art in all its forms. Students will then be better placed to fulfill their aspirations, whether that be for higher education, apprenticeships or working in the wider community.
