The MA Fine Art and Education course at Northumbria University has an established national reputation for excellence in equipping artist/teachers/educators with the possibility for an energetic reappraisal of their own artistic practices, that is directly imbedded in understanding and utilizing their existing creative pedagogical skills.

The MA Fine Art and Education is a flexible part-time course run over a two year period, designed for artists/teachers/educators who want to develop their professional creative identity within an encouraging community of practice. Students receive supervision that is highly engaged and crafted to support the individuality of their emerging artistic practice. The course can facilitate the development of artists from all disciplines (including Performing Arts practitioners), working in education environments such as: schools, colleges, galleries and diverse community settings.

The MA Fine Art and Education course is suitable for artists/teachers/educators based nationally and internationally. It draws upon the BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art partnership, which is the result of a unique collaboration between BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Department of Arts at Northumbria University and was initiated in 2003. The MA Fine Art and Education course culminates each year with the BALTIC Artist Teacher Award. This award provides one graduating student with the opportunity to create a solo exhibition at BALTIC, working professionally with the support of their esteemed educational and technical teams, and reaching a considerable regional audience.
