Bucks Art Foundation Course Has Lift Off

Foundation course student work
One of the best things about studying at Bucks is the wide variety of creative work being done here at the university. Yesterday I was looking for a room on campus and I stumbled into the workshop of the Fine Art Foundation Course - where someone appears to be building a scale model of a WW2 biplane. How cool is this? It looks like someone is having a great deal of fun. In fact, the Foundation Course in Fine Art is one of our most popular and successful courses at Bucks, and a great way for a student to experiment in all different kinds of creative media. Which, apparently, includes building scale models of WW2 biplanes.

As ever, we approve of creative collaborations between our animation and visual effects students and the other departments at Bucks. Getting those collaborations under way is not always easy, but a great place for any student to begin is just by walking around the Uni and taking a peek at the excellent work being done here. Part of the student experience is about finding talented people you would like to work with.
