The BFA is a three-year, studio-based course in which students work alongside each other in collaboratively organised studios engaging with the diversity of disciplines that shape contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, video, sound, performance and other experimental forms.

Fine Art at LMH

Fine Art students will spend much of their time at the Ruskin School, but the College also provides a supportive environment for them to develop and display their talents. Second year students traditionally produce a show of their work in college, sometimes in conjunction with alumni, in Hilary or Trinity term.

LMH has a very interesting collection of art, some of which is the work of earlier Fine Arts students. Art historian, former Slade Professor of Fine Art at Cambridge University, Dr Jennifer Montagu CBE is a Honorary Fellow of LMH.
