Diploma in Fine Art
SPM/UEC/O-level/Equivalent: 3 credits (pass in BM and History for SPM)
The course offers the study of fine art as an educational process which provides opportunities for the students to develop creative skills and visual language to probe reality and express through the tangibility of form.
The academic programme which stresses critical and creative thinking along with strong studio-based studies, also offers students the opportunity to examine the challenging human values and search for individual meaning in the form of contemporary or historical context.
The course begins with intensive work in drawing, painting, print making, figure drawing and non-traditional experimental projects to expose students to the visual language necessary for them to explore and realise their individual artistic development.
Advanced and in-depth studies are implemented progressively to enable the students to develop skills and techniques, and to express their ideas, perception, imagination, response and creativity.
