We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Drawing offer advanced training in artistic techniques for producing images using a range of utensils such as ink, pencil, charcoal etc.
Taught MA and MFA degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Art or Design.
Courses in this field are highly diverse, and often intraciliary in nature. As well as advancing your techniques in methods for drawing, you will also enhance your knowledge of the development of drawing over centuries. Particularly, you will analyse its socio-political influences, its technological advances and its cultural variations.
You will experiment with a range of materials, genres and topics in your work, creating of original art pieces and understanding current methodologies in contemporary drawing practise. From life drawing to still life, nature to architecture, you may apply techniques from a range of styles. These could include Realism and surrealism, fauvism, cubism (and any other ‘isms’ you can think of!).
Aside from arts practice, professional drawers also apply their expertise to disciplines such as cartography, engineering, architecture and illustration.
