MA Visual Arts: Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts demands strong voices and entrepreneurial image-makers who can tell their own stories. This course builds on the skills our students already have, through personally ambitious projects and wider interaction with the artistic community.
What students can expect from the course:
- A course that focuses on originality and authorship, aiming to encourage visual thinking, research skills and storytelling ability, while developing their entrepreneurial qualities, communication and professional skills
- A series of workshops, discussion groups, and one-to-one tutorials that help them develop a proposal for an ambitious and engaging project
- To test out and implement critical and practical skills, as well as consider how to develop their practice and any new directions they may take
- Studio based lecture programme, practitioner visits and seminars
- A shared lecture programme across the Visual Arts courses that draw upon the richness of research across Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon Colleges
- Visits to museums and engagement with the creative environment London has
- Students are also encouraged to take part in exhibitions, competitions and commissions that have previously involved collaborations with Wellcome Trust, Blackhall Studios as well as Purestone digital marketing agency
Unit One – Research, Development and Practice
Students will explore, experiment and research to further develop their Project Proposals. This unit introduces students to pathway specific issues and topics, research methodologies and techniques. It aims to orientate students and their practice within the course, and develop their contextual, critical and research skills at the onset of their MA learning.
Unit Two – Reflection and Presentation
Resolution and presentation of students' work according to their Project Proposal. A symposium will provide the opportunity to present their research and provide further peer feedback. Students' practice at this stage should synthesise their practical, conceptual and professional abilities and they will be expected to consider their future practice, audience and context of their work in contemporary practice.
The intention and context of students' work will inform their decisions they will take regarding a final exhibition. Students' will also be expected to work collaboratively with their peers to actively plan, organise and install an exhibition as part of their continued Personal and Professional Development.
