Course summary

Overview

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, both nationally and internationally, as well as stimulating connections, debates and new approaches to drawing across a range of disciplines.

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. We offer a dynamic studio environment, with access to workshop areas across the college.

Careers & Alumni

Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery, theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

Our programmes offer professional skills development to support our students as they progress within industry, self-employment (in the Creative Industries sector) and further Level 7 and 8 studies. The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.
