MA Drawing

Course Duration

1 year; full-time
2 years; part-time

Our Masters programmes offer you an intensive personal programme of creative and stimulating study within a supportive critical and practical framework that enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of your chosen practice.

We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.

Our MA Drawing programme enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of drawing as practice.

We provide a critically engaged and supportive studio environment in which you can develop and extend your use of drawing, encouraging you to take risks with your own practice, and to experiment with and critically reflect upon drawing practice, using current research.

A key feature of the MA Drawing programme is to provide a forum in which drawing issues from across postgraduate disciplines can be explored and tested. The programme involves an interrogation of the potential of drawing to communicate, explain and propose ideas.

You will explore a range of strategies, materials and technologies, helping you define a personal methodology for drawing. The programme enables you to seek opportunities to extend your practice, as well as stimulating connections, debates and new approaches to drawing across a range of disciplines.

You will have the opportunity to critically engage with current debates within the subject area, relevant institutional contexts and partners and be encouraged to consider what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.

We’ll support you in articulating your ideas, developing your working methods and creating independent work, through individual tutorials, lectures, subject-specific seminars, studio and gallery visits and group critiques with access to our rich workshop areas and technical resources across the college.
