MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts offers emerging artists an intensive programme of development to professional practice. The course is designed to help enhance the making, criticality and articulation of your practice. It aims to expand your work's audiences and contextual reach.
Experimental studio practice and individual inquiry are activated in professional contexts. These challenge what art is or could be, how art is communicated, and how artists can develop their practices in forward-thinking and culturally progressive ways.
