BA (Hons) in Visual Art

What is Art?

Art as a subject taught at third level encourages self-expression and creativity while building confidence and creative skills as well as a sense of individual identity for our students.  Most important, studying visual art at WIT helps to develop our students critical thinking and the ability to interpret the world around us through determination and resilience while opening up new possibilities to think beyond what we already know through art’s unique visual language.  

What is the BA (Hons) in Visual Art?

The undergraduate Visual Art programme at WIT offers students the opportunity to work broadly and experimental across a wide range of fine art media and practices, these include; drawing, painting, sculpture, print-making, photography, performance, video and digital media. On this studio-based programme, emphasis is placed on developing both the student’s visual awareness and artistic analysis through theoretical and historical contexts in contemporary art in order to shape and develop each student’s individual art practices.  

The programme is structured on the basis of a modulated four-year degree, starting with the inculcation of core skills. These are then extended through a number of thematic projects in which practical ability is augmented and strengthened by the development of visual awareness. Finally, each student brings their cumulative learning to bear on the accomplishment of a personal artistic project.

Graduate show

This year’s WIT Art Graduate Exhibition brings together the work of the final year Visual Art students at WIT to celebrate and share with the public the extraordinary artworks that have been made during the strangest of years. The graduates work can be viewed on the Six Degrees website.
