Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art (6 months full time)
The Postgraduate DiplPhotos of Cyprus College of Artoma in Fine Art (also known as the Cornaro Fellowship programme) is aimed at holders of BA and BFA degrees in studio art subjects and other artists with professional experience.

First held in 1978 it is an extremely well-respected course that attracts painting, sculpture and other art students from around the world, and in particular from Britain, Ireland and the European Union, and the United States and Canada. All tuition is in English.

The course is highly practical in nature, and follows the standard format of a British postgraduate diploma in Fine Art. This means students are given their own studio space to work in and they are asked to explore their own interests and ideas with the support of weekly tutorials, group crits and cultural studies lectures. Written work coPicture of Art Courses in Cyprusmprises a self-analysis of the students own work in relation to historic and contemporary art and other culture and being in Cyprus. Throughout the six months tutors encourage students to engage with the fact that they are based in Cyprus and to allow this to have an impact upon their work.

Most students on the course are hands-on painters and sculptors, and the college specialises in these activities in terms of its staffing and beliefs. You should also bear in mind the College is a low-tech environment, so if you have need of specialist technical equipment to make your work you will have to provide this yourself. For painters there is plenty of white-walled studio space, and in the mild climate the opportunity to work outdoors for much of the year. For sculptors, stone-carviImages of Cyprus College of Artng, construction, cold-casting and welding are all possible.
