UCA Farnham Fine Art Stage 1 2014 – 2 Day Induction Project


Over the last week year 1 students have been inducted into the BA (Hons) Fine Art course at University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. 

They have embarked on a project that introduced them to the excellent workshop spaces, met and worked with the dedicated technicians, and worked together in the studio.
