MA Fine Art and Education is a flexible part-time course run over a two year period, designed for artists/teachers 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 MA Fine Art and Education course is suitable for artists/teachers 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.
