Art at Lancaster integrates both practical studio work with theory producing high quality and critically aware artists. 

Our aim from the beginning of your studies is to support your creative aspirations and ambitions. We produce informed practitioners - artists knowledgeable about contemporary art and ideas, and clear and determined in their own aims and goals. We do this through the integration of studio practice, art history, theory and professional practice. This combination equips you with the skills needed throughout your career, whether you continue as an artist, curator, academic or as a professional in the media or wider art economy.
