PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE: 20 QUESTIONS – Interviews with UK undergraduate Fine Art staff exploring how students are prepared for life after art school. Interviews collected and edited by Jo Allen and Sarah Rowles When it comes to an undergraduate fine art education, what is professional practice? How are students prepared for life after their course? How might attitudes and approaches be shaped by factors such as location, the wider course philosophy, and the cultural and political climate? Professional practice is a contested area. Quite how fine art courses prepare their students for exit, and what they are preparing them for, has long been a matter of tension and debate. And this debate has intensified amidst the current climate of rising tuition fees, reduced maintenance grants, and an increased government emphasis on employability. In ‘Professional Practice : 20 Questions’ we ask undergraduate fine art staff from around the UK to unpack this topic and share examples of their own approaches and philosophies to preparing students for life after art school. This book sheds light on the important question: What and who is a fine art education for? It is essential reading for anyone teaching art at secondary level and above, sector professionals, and for anyone who might be thinking of studying fine art at undergraduate level.
