Fine Art is a vital form of cultural expression that enriches our lives and challenges our views of the world. We rely on art to enrich our lives as well as to challenge our interpretation of the world around us. The discipline of Fine Arts invites us to expand our vision through creative experimentation and the unique possibilities of communicating with our surroundings through art.
The Fine Art programme at USM's School of the Arts offers the opportunity for students to concentrate and explore their specific area of interest via traditional and new forms of art. Explorations in new art forms such as the media and electronic arts enable students to further develop conceptual thinking and creative possibilities presented by rapidly expanding technology. The Fine Art degree programme is designed to present a number of distinguished approaches to art making and analysis on a broad overview of technique, theory and history.
The Fine Arts programme encourages independent thinking, self-motivation, and an experimental approach to studio practices. Courses are offered in art history, sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and printmaking. An integral part of the Fine Art major's undergraduate final year asessment is Projek Seni (Final Art Project) that focuses on students' area of concentration, culminating in an exhibition on campus at the end of the academic year.
