YEAR-LONG COURSES 2021
The year-long courses at Browne School of Art have been developed to fulfil a growing requirement for a sequential pathway to study that may be undertaken without unduly compromising work, family or other commitments. These courses extend from half a day to a day a week at levels 1-3 and a schedule of weekend sessions at level 4.
Register your interest now for one of our year-long courses 2021. Interviews for year-long applicants are scheduled to begin in late October 2020. Applications will remain open until course places are filled.
All students to the year-long programs will need to attend a short informal interview. Current year-long students are also required to attend an interview for entry into follow-on levels and are required to register their intention for advancement.
How do you know which of these courses is the right one for you? At the interview, we can discuss whether the course is right for you and to see that you have reached a suitable level of development to get the most from participation at a particular course level.
What are the requirements?
PAINTING 1: At this level, we don't require a portfolio as part of your application as much as you need commitment and determination.
However, you may bring examples of past work and we will be happy to consider these.
PAINTING 2, 3 & 4 require examples of current or past work. These may be in the form of physical examples, a photographic record or a more comprehensive portfolio.
These courses are consistently in high demand and so we recommend that you register as soon as possible.
Email us or leave a phone message and we will contact you to arrange a suitable time for an interview: CONTACT US
All of these courses have a proven record of significant success and many of our students go on to engage further within the arts with a passion and ambition to succeed.
The year-long courses encompass levels suitable for beginning students to those of a more advanced experience. Levels are indicated as L1, L2, L3 & L4 and applicants may enter at a level deemed most suitable for their experience.
Practical skills are introduced at the beginning levels, and over time a more philosophical positioning is encouraged. This is an important element of creative engagement and is part of a natural pedagogical development and curiosity.
Our Visual Arts Mentoring Programme [VAMP] is our most recent addition to our year-long courses. The programme has been developed for artists across a broad spectrum of creative disciplines who feel that they would benefit from the support and guidance of a professional, practising artist and mentor.
All of the year-long courses conclude with an exhibition of work in our dedicated BSA GALLERY.
