MA Conservation at Camberwell College of Arts is a two year course with over 40 years experience in teaching specialist skills and knowledge, and prepares our students for work in specific fields of the conservation world. The course offers two pathways that our students choose to specialise in; Art on Paper and Books and Archival Materials.
MA Book Arts at Camberwell College of Arts focuses on debates concerning the cultural, creative and individual functions of the book. The course engages with aspects of the book such as sequence, poetry, structure and materials; encompassing printed multiples and sculptural one-offs.
MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Arts is aimed at design and applied art practitioners with well-developed workshop skills who are seeking to develop a critical and reflective approach to their practice. Making and learning are intertwined, and through a contextual programme our students explore the position of the designer and maker within contemporary culture and society.
MA Fine Art Digital at Camberwell College of Arts focuses on art that engages with, uses and is impacted by the digital. This course doesn’t focus on technology but presents it as a tool to facilitate ideas, placing emphasis upon its creative and artistic use. Our MA in Fine Art Digital is offered both as a studio based course and an online course.
MA 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.
MA Printmaking at Camberwell College of Arts encourages students to reflect on printmaking in its many contexts. The international success of our MA in Printmaking is due to how we explore this medium in its own right, as well as its relationship to wider contemporary practices. We respond to current debates about the role of skill and authorship in the creation of artworks, as well as the notion of the unique work of art.
