Learning at the School of Art

This year, after all the difficulties and restrictions of the past, we have come to realise what magnificent and flexible facilities the Art House provides for all of us. These range from lecture theatres which can cater for small groups, for discussions, to open events, which attract large numbers and provide working and exhibition space. We have a wide range of studios and work places, allowing students to work creatively, develop new ideas and interact with both their tutors, teachers and with an ever increasing network of past students , potential employers and indeed, the local community .

Our Courses

The Art House building itself provides a stimulating environment for our full complement of School of Arts based courses, but this is not all. The School embraces all kinds of varied opportunities from the more traditional Fine Arts, painting and sculpture, to Drama, Film and Television, Journalism and Photography to Game Art and Animation, Illustration, and our widely known and respected Graphic Design course. We pay great attention to the employability of our graduate students, with live briefs, teamwork and leadership being stressed throughout the graduate years. This is made more real by delivery of all these activities in the wonderful School of Arts.

The Art House - Students Working 2

Making spaces and events

The School of Artss here at Worcester delivers a range of very varied courses at several centres within the campus, but undoubtedly our showpiece is the magnificent Arts House. Commissioned in 2019, the listed building has very successfully remodelled itself to provide all modern facilities and functions for the whole range of student needs and opportunities. There is ample working studio space, and the Art House is sufficiently flexible to cater for all manner of events from exhibitions to teaching groups of all sizes. Visitors to the Art House are always struck by the feeling of space and light that it engenders, and the way in which its special atmosphere encourages creative thought and activity.

The Art House also creates a link between the University and the City of Worcester. To give some idea of the importance of this partnership, something over 3000 visitors to our various exhibitions and activities have attended shows and lectures in the very first two years of its existence.

But its main achievement is, of course, to provide first class facilities for our students. The feedback we get from all School of Arts students is universally positive, and not without reason.

Facilities

The Art House was officially opened in 2019 by the Duke of Gloucester and both staff and students are now busily experimenting with all the opportunities this super new space now provides. At the centre of a whole range of studio and teaching areas is the Creative Hub which provides the interface between our students, our staff team and the wider industry . This will increasingly provide contact with clients, past alumni and new sponsors, keeping us closely in touch with the world of work. We can present and pitch, discuss and develop our courses in impressive surroundings, ranging from small intimate areas to larger settings, and we will attract and cater for exhibitions and new work, all available to the people of Worcester.

Digital Arts Centre

The DAC, as we call it, traditionally is the home of the more digital disciplines of film production, Creative media and graphic design. It consists of two purpose built Mac Suites as well as a broadcast quality film studio (complete with gallery) and an audio recording studio. These spaces are highly in demand and are complimented by communal spaces for work, play and meetings. A very busy and exciting place to be.
