Information for course "Art (Fine or Practice) BFA/MFA"
General description: In the United States and Canada, the Bachelor of Fine Arts, usually abbreviated BFA, is the standard undergraduate degree for students seeking a professional education in the visual or performing arts. It is also named in some countries the Bachelor of Creative Arts or BCA. In Britain the equivalent degree is the Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts, while in Australia the Bachelor of Fine Arts is awarded to students completing a degree in visual arts, but not performing arts. Specific degrees such as the Bachelor of Dance or Bachelor of Drama are used in the performing arts in Australia and much of Europe. In the US, the degree differs from a Bachelor of Arts degree in that the majority of the program consists of a practical studio component, as contrasted with lecture and discussion classes. A typical US BFA program consists of two-thirds study in the arts, with one-third in more general liberal arts studies; for a BA in Art, the ratio might be reversed.. We offer free courseware as pre/post of class lectures both the Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) and the Master of Fine Arts degree (MFA). Undergraduate programs can receive a Minor in Art Practice.

General description: Outside of the obvious prize money of art competitions, grants & residencies help to validate your work. They show that a knowledgeable panel of experienced art professionals is interested in encouraging your practice. Getting grants is a big confidence builder and you often end up meeting other important contemporaries at the awards ceremonies or exhibitions that accompany the distribution of the prize or prizes. Grants also look great on your resume and speak volumes about your dedication to art practice. If you don't already have a list of the top ten or twenty grants you hope to capture in the coming years and decades, below you will find a list to get you started looking. And remember to keep in mind that no award is too big or to small to pursue. Every award is equally important to the life of the artist receiving it. #art #grant #contest # residency #competition #gallary #show

General description: Art is "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others". By this definition of the word, artistic works have existed for almost as long as humankind: from early pre-historic art to contemporary art; however, some theories restrict the concept to modern Western societies. The first and broadest sense of art is the one that has remained closest to the older Latin meaning, which roughly translates to "skill" or "craft." A few examples where this meaning proves very broad include artifact, artificial, artifice, medical arts, and military arts. However, there are many other colloquial uses of the word, all with some relation to its etymology.
