|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA (Hons))|
Develop expertise and knowledge of drawing by exploring traditional and contemporary approaches to the discipline. Thinking through drawing, you’ll investigate the material and conceptual possibilities of the field and its applications in cultural and professional contexts to develop a drawing language of your own.
Falmouth is one of only a few UK universities to offer a bespoke drawing degree and is the ideal location to grow your skills and critical and contextual understanding of this exciting field of practice.
You'll build your skills, expertise and career opportunities through contextual and historical theories and industry-level practice. Projects and exercises will teach you to record the material world through observation, memory and imagination, theories and systems, and concepts and narratives. You'll develop your portfolio of work, and have the chance to visit culturally rich European capitals.
The principle of learning through doing is our overriding approach; this is a practice-based drawing course based on an active studio culture. During your time here, you will become a rigorous and innovative critical thinker and practitioner, working independently, ambitiously and confidently to develop and sustain a self-reflective working practice in a professional context.
This studio-based Drawing degree brings together practical approaches, structured learning, dedicated tutor support, and opportunities for national and international placements, along with optional visits to museums, galleries and other artistic locations, and elective study trips to European museums and gallery collections. As you progress, you'll take greater ownership of your work through self-directed projects.
Our visiting lecture series has featured speakers like drawing commentator Deanna Petherbridge, artists Anita Taylor and Jessie Brennan, and illustrator Sue Coe.
